Writing my short story about Athol/Mareth and getting into the life of this teenaged assassin has been an interesting ride. While I don’t normally care to write about such brutal anti-heros like her, it has turned out to be really easy to do.
While the girl has no redeeming qualities, or only a few, she does make a good anti-hero in a way because she is cold, determined, knows what she does is wrong but does it anyway, and is all around a bad-ass. This will be all be tested in the novel from Chapter 6 onward. I will keep posting updates as to what’s happening. I will still put up snippets from my first draft, but try to hold off on some plot ideas to keep them a secret.
