Writing Insights

As always, I’m reading and one of the books I’m reading of late is Live Writing: Breathing Life into Your Words by Ralph Fletcher. My last two posts have been about CHARACTERS, and Ralph has a great quote from Carolyn Coman in this book concerning characters.

Carolyn says, “I don’t create characters so much as I make room inside my mind and heart for them to come and get me.”

Wow! What an amazing perspective. So now it’s just a question of seeing how roomy I can make my mind and heart because I can already hear some eager characters calling out to me, wanting to come in.

How about you? Can you make room for some characters???
