WIP Wednesday

February 22, 2012 | WIP Wednesday

Last week I posted about searching for your author voice and I mentioned finding your natural style was only the beginning.

Characters need a distinct voice too. Some of these arise naturally from the inner morass, thank goodness. While others have to be drawn out like flecks of gold hidden in river silt.

Once the characters are as nicely layered as a sweet onion, the story flows because if I fully understand who they are then I know what they would do in any situation. Building character remains the best and the hardest part of writing.

I love reading about struggles. Please share your frustrations with your own quest.
