Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as “Ah, Love”, does it?
But, man, oh man, your character’s resentment can certainly make for good writing.
Resentment usually leads to one of two reactions:
1 – revenge
2 – remorse
If it’s revenge, then you’ve got all kinds of possibilities for your character and his or her interactions with the person or object or situation causing the resentment.
If it’s remorse, you’ve got yourself a boat load of emotional fodder for your plot.
And, you can have Resentment —> Revenge —> Remorse.
What’s your take on using resentment in your writing?
