Writing tip of the week

The most important part of a story is how you develop and portray the characters. These determines how much people like them and want to see what happens to them.

Bad characters = no reader caring = no enjoyment (no matter how engaging the concept.

Ask yourself when last you cried when something bad happened to a character in a book that you were reading or a movie that you were watching. What did that writer do to develop the character and make them a real person?

    Interesting points regarding characters. I’ve had to restructure one of my thrillers to allow the main characters to each have a voice and a story quest (lacking before).

    Thanks for the tip.
