Sit Tight and Write On!
“Hello, I am Tom.”
Based on a name like “Tom”, do you know whether that person is a loyal friend or one who will betray you one day? How much do you know about a person when you first meet him?
If you are only meeting “Tom” in a story without being able to actually see him, he will become an even bigger mystery!
The question is: Why do we need to know more about “Tom”?
A GOOD STORY INVOLVES YOUR HEART AND MIND.
Good stories have characters that we can understand and relate to. Characters are central to a story as what they do and go through can trigger our emotions. These characters keep us reading to the end.
This is why writers need to let readers know more about the characters. With only a given name like “Tom” in the story, will you be able to understand “Tom” and be engaged in the story about him? We do not think so.
BE A BETTER WRITER. LET YOUR CHARACTERS ENGAGE YOUR READERS.
It is frustrating when you are groping in the dark, unsure of how to create well-developed and engaging characters that will bring your writing to a new level. We want you to have clarity and to ace your shot with A.I.M.
