Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
And we’re revving up IWSG Day to make it more fun and interactive! Every month, we'll announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
November's Question: What is your favourite aspect of being a writer?
Another tough question!
There's so much I love, but I really love the thought that, one day, my characters will be 'alive' for someone else.
For me, reading and writing are all about the characters and their emotions. The people in the books I've read have often become real for me, starting with Anne of Green Gables way back when. If the characters' emotions reach into me, then those characters become people.
If I can write characters who truly come alive for a reader or two, that would be incredible!
How about you? Is it all about the characters for you, too? What's your favourite part of writing? Or reading?
