I for Ill-fated – #atozchallenge


Ill-fated, doomed, destined for misfortune.

These fates make for such wonderful characters.

It’s terrible to say, but it’s true.  And most of my main characters seem to be ill-fated.

There’s Sachi, of course, whose death is the catalyst for the whole story in the Undoing Chronicles.  My main character in Weeping Willow will lose everyone she loves before finding her own destiny.  In my Gyti stories, every main character will lose something important to them.

Why are these things so important?

Because character development only happens through trials, both in stories and in real life.

Who are your favorite ill-fated characters?
