Since I’ve been reading so much, I’ve also been pondering.
Welcome to my pondering. 😉
As many of you know I’m a writer. I’ve been writing since I was little, like ten or maybe younger. I remember one time rewriting one of my favorite books as a kid, but having to go to my mom to ask her how to spell a lot of words. It was a book about cowboys, y’all I loved that book. I wrote the book on different colored card stock, drew pictures and stapled it together to look like a book. I wish I had a picture to show you guys. 😀
When I was 13 I stumbled down the rabbit hole into Nanowrimo and I was enthralled. My wordcount for that year was around 13k. Since then I haven’t been able to stay away from Nano. Writing has been what I have ate, drank, and breathed since then, petting plot bunnies is my specialty.
So since I’ve been reading all of these books lately it’s got me wondering.
What makes you care about characters? Characters come in every shape, race, gender and origin. They all have different quirks and skills, different back stories. They each have something that they want. We read books to be entertained, or to learn something, or to be inspired. So what makes you look at a character and say,
“This one. I love this on.”
Let me know in the comments below! I’d love to chat with everyone about characters, loving characters, and also how to write characters that other will love.
