Kristen Lamb’s post about creating multi-dimensional characters spoke to me just when I needed to be reminded of what makes a character seem alive in a novel. I was swamped the month of April as I tried to write 45K-50K words for Camp NaNoWriMo. I made it! I’m a WINNER!!! though I have not finished my novel yet. I’m now taking a short break from it so I can gather my thoughts and figure out where I put my inner editor so I can bring her out again to edit what I do have so I can finish my WIP (work-in-progress).
It’s been a fabulous journey so far. The characters have become part of my world. But I do need to remember to reveal the character’s secrets slowly. I’m still working on showing not telling so this post hit home for me.
If you’re a writer, please take a moment to read her post. 😀
