I’m reminded that stories come at their own pace at their own time, and rushing it isn’t always going to help the characters along. What does help is when you truly give the characters a voice, step back, and allow them to use it.
The characters we write are just like anyone else. They deserve our respect and willingness to listen. After all, if they’re going to speak, they need to be heard. If we, as writers, won’t take the time to listen to our characters, then why should anyone else? The simple answer is, they won’t. So that is my little lesson for the day.
I hope you all have a lovely day, night, or whatever it is where you are. Love to all, and happy writing! 🙂
