As I have mentioned previously, my Character Development course was extremely hard, and no matter what I did, somehow it wasn’t good enough, or at least, that’s how I interpreted my professor’s feedback. Now I am well aware that a character’s backstory is very important. It’s what makes him or her a real person. See, I knew that, but it just wasn’t being reflected on my work.
I was getting frustrated and there were times when I thought I would have to retake the course. No joke! But today, after many days of obsessing over my school email, I received an email with my professor’s notes on my characters portfolio.
Yes, my heart was thumping and I was thinking the end of the world was approaching, but one thing is certain, I didn’t expect what I read.
My professor loved it!
He loved my protagonist backstory and history as well as my antagonist backstory and history. In fact, he felt my antagonist bio was touching.
Gosh, I felt accomplished after reading that.
I guess it’s true what they say about not giving up and giving it your all.
Little by little, I feel I’m getting there, wherever there is.
Till Next Time
