I don’t know what it is exactly, but I am worried that my book is too darned dark.
I haven’t even revealed the worst secrets to my main character yet, and it’s already pretty awful.
How dark is too dark? When does a novel stop being entertaining and start being draining?
I hit poor Beatrice pretty hard with some twisted information yesterday, and she still hasn’t discovered the worst of it. Will anyone really be interested in reading about the horrors that have befallen her?
Today, I’m just not sure. *sigh*
But, regardless, the official wordcount validator is running now at NaNoWriMo and I’ve uploaded my November work into it for a total of 52,884 words and am now an official “winner”, so there’s that.
