Dear Fellow Writer,
I’m quite sure that you’re not reading this page by mistake.
I’m not going to get all hokey-pokey and claim that ‘fate’ brought you here, but rather something more powerful than fate.
You have a desire to create incredible writing works that people totally gush over and if you can earn a nice nest egg in the process, that would be great.
Am I right or am I right?
We both know I am, but we both also know another truth:
Trying to succeed with this whole ‘writing thing’ can be tough!
There seems to be so many moving parts and so many talking heads about what you should and shouldn’t be doing that it can be more confusing than trying to fit a square peg into a round hole!
But if I had to tell you to focus somewhere and get good at this one skill, it would be developing your characters.
True, there are other elements that come into play like scenery and more, but if your characters can’t connect with your audience and make them feel what the fictional character feels, then you’re dead in the water before you even get started.
Finished. Finito. Game Over.
This is what was a major game changer for me. Once I discovered a couple of key elements to boost my characters’ personality and like-ability, then I began to sell tons of books through self-publishing.
