Haunt your major characters

Flogging the Quill: Haunt your major characters for stronger storytelling

Another great post from Ray Rhamey. I'm happy to say that the protagonist in my novel, Waylaid (which is two chapters from being finished!) is, indeed, haunted. In fact, long before Ray's post on this, I wrote this tagline (with a lot of help from my crit partner, Linda Bennett!):

Haunted by shadowy images from his past, a troubled young man takes refuge in the arms of two improbable lovers.

So, I'm feeling like I'm at least on the right track.
