Words that are Speaking to Me

I focus on creating situations that force the character out of her comfort zone, raising the emotional stakes as I go along. If I’ve developed conflicts that are organic and in keeping with the character’s world, her response to conflicts will naturally lead to internal growth.

  1. Still playing with characters? 🙂 One think I like about the Words That Are Speaking to Me posts is that the quotes seem to follow the processes, ups and downs, and learning that you do as a writer.
