R. Rayko, Rewrites and Romance
Have you met Rayko? If you didn’t you haven’t read Bactine. But that’s no problem.
Rayko is the daughter of new boss of Daniel Zacharias, whom I’ve introduced earlier in this blogging challenge. Writing her character was a lot of fun as I planned and saw her change from someone who despises Daniel to someone who secretly starts helping him. Of course he doesn’t know that.
Coming up with the verbal battles between the two, and the thoughts that surround them provided me with a lot of entertainment and rewrites. There’s the second R in this post. As their relationship developed, I saw options to improve earlier parts so that would make the whole story even better.
Bactine was also the first story where I intentionally added a touch of romance. Only after reading a review where the romance part in the story was actually mentioned I felt that perhaps I can do this more often, another R that I can add to this letter in the A-Z blogging challenge!
