I’ve been very busy for some days now, reading books that explore the outlook of women on various aspects of life — sexuality, community, friendship, beauty — and I keep learning new things. Women are exotic and it pays to see things through their eyes in a man’s world.
I’m currently drawing up the psyche of the lady called Ramat and it’s a rewarding experience. She’s bold, yet timid and haunted by many fears. I don’t know whether to continue casting her in her role as a brash reporter. Obviously, I’ll have to start out with her as timid, then move upward, with her growing in confidence.
Mahmoud, our villain is supposed to be a good guy who degenerates into evil. Like Ramat, he’s muslim [partly to re-inforce my belief that muslims can be both good and bad, like christians] but he’s not…
My gosh, I’m giving yout the plot! I’d best end here ;).
I’m using Micosoft Office OneNote for my work and it’s simply super. I can easily assign sections for charcters and for the chapters, then use subsectiosn for Parts [or Books as the case may be].
As soon as I’m through with Profesor Irfan’s paper, I’m going to start working on it tonight — as you’ve guessed, I’m scrapping what I had before.
