#WIPjoy Day 12

A desert at sunset with a text overly that reads WIPjoy Day 12

Welcome to #WIPjoy! This is week 2, where I discuss relationships in the book.

Day 12: What was your antagonist’s past like?

Harlow lived with her family in a fairly remote town, west of the capital, before enrolling in the Academy. They put a lot of pressure on her to succeed and earn a place of pride within her family of business owners, tradesmen, and minor political officials. She’s only 16 (like her classmate Zephyr and his sister), and since she had a fairly easy life—not a lot of trauma or drama—she has a lot of growing up to do.
