The other day while flipping through channels, I started watching the end of a movie about witches. It was at the climax when the bad guy was fighting with what I assumed to be the good guy. Bodies were flying about, equipment was being thrown with the toss of their hands, but the funny thing was – I couldn't tell them apart.
They both were about the same build, had the same color hair, which was cut the same way. They both even wore the same kind of clothes (long black coats). I didn't know who to root for.
Right now I'm working on a book where I have two male POV. It's tricky. I have to make sure you know who is talking just by their voice. I need to make sure their names don't sound the same. (I once had a chapter with a Finley and a Finrod - head shakes). I need to make their character arcs completely different.
So that is what I'm working not this week. Trying to make sure my two male leads are very different.
How about you? What are you working on?
