Characters Are Real

by Barbara Wood last modified Mar 14, 2019 14:38

When I'm writing characters and fleshing them out with all kinds of traits, a back story, what motivates them, I do consider them to be real people. I'm very attached to them. I have to be, to make sure they are authentic and behave in real ways. I have heard from so many readers over the years that they too are deeply attached to the characters. Some of my close friends have been quite upset with me when I've killed a character and they have let me know about it! I'm pleased to know that during the time a reader immerses herself/himself into a story that they too are in the story. That makes my day!
