There has been a story in me for quite a while. It is of two girls, set in a feudal/medieval era. They met as children. One is a antisocial bookworm, highly opinionated with a quiet steely composure. The other is the youngest heir of nobility; a free spirit used to having her way all her life. Not an arrogant rich kid, but wild and untempered.
When they meet there are sparks. Through the friction there is borne a friendship. And from the friendship something more.
Can anyone advise me how go about developing their relationship?
- I do not need specific plot points or story lines and such, just how can I get into the characters' minds.
- Being a male writer, is there any advice on capturing the opposite gender's voice as well?
