Tips & Answers to Qs

Character Motivation

Do you know why a character is doing what s/he is doing? Do your readers?

Here’s a MOTIVATION Q&A for your MCs & secondary characters:

Background: Where did s/he grow up? Home situation? Siblings? Economic status? Education?
Emotional make-up: Big events that shaped her/his life? <- These should be major.

Current status: Living situation? Pets? Children? Outward demeanor? Romantic track record?

All the Feels

The best part of writing is creating the world you want in the manner you want it, whether it’s a fantasy realm, an historical setting, or a fictional contemporary town. The second best part of being an author is sharing that world with your readers. You invite them into your imagination, your experiences, and your heart.

It’s the heart that’s the most important part of you that you share.

Many authors work out frustrations, disappointments and heartache in their writing, and the more raw the emotion, the greater the connection with the reader. Which isn’t to say a well crafted story with a strong plot line and good, descriptive, rich settings aren’t important, but providing all that to your reader without giving them deep emotions is much like a new house without trees, a garden, furniture and objets d’art.

Don’t be afraid to pour everything your character can feel into a scene. The worst that can happen is your editor tells you to dial it back, which occurs a lot less than an editor saying, "Give me more." If you want to scream at a character, or if you laugh and/or cry when you’re writing a scene, that’s a good barometer for how your readers are going to feel. It’s the emotions that they connect to –the commonality of feeling when something befalls a character and how that character reacts to which readers relate.

Jump in and get messy with your characters’ emotions. Your readers will thank you for it.
