I know the title imply's I should be phoning mental health and not asking for help in writing a character. The thing is that I have never written a character quite like George. Here's the deal on George: He lives in eighteenth century England and is an aristocrat whose father gambled away most of the family money, leaving George shouldering a lot more responsibility than his friends did. He was left taking care of his younger sister and mother at an early age. He is seen as trustworthy, mild and a little straight laced by his friends. He smiles and says nothing but inside he's seething. He hates every one and is jealous of what other people have. He's especially jealous of his best friend who always seemed to have what George could never have. You know, the golden boy? George especially coveted his best friend's wife and while his friend was out of town tending to business he went to his best friend's house to confess his love for the wife in hopes that she would run away with him. But that didn't happen, so in a rage he killed her and hid her body on his friend's estate, which they found a few days later. He was feeling a kind of satisfaction to see his best friend finally suffer, except now he's having hallucinations of the wife coming back to haunt him. My problem is this: How do show this man's mind set? His anger, his seething hatred and the slow decent into insanity? (Too many cliches? Heh.) I have always reading about characters like these and have dreamed about writing about one, but I really have nothing to compare it to. PLEASE help! Thank you M.
