A few weeks ago, I read a blog about the author getting emotiaonal over their character.
I have to say, I've felt sad at my character's situation, but not until today, my very first ever "nothing but writing" day (I'm on my lunch break lol), have I really experienced my character's emotions.
The first chapter (short backstory) made me cry like a baby!
I was so sad for my character, but thrilled to be feeling such emotion for her!
It was a strange range of emotions!
But I was very thankful for them.
I've already conencted with my character, I hope it will continue throughout the story, and that she will connect with the readers.
What I did differently than before:
1. character worksheet.
-I completed an in depth evaluation sheet of the person: eye color, skills, etc.
2. I have been dwelling on this story for months in the background.
-A friend of mine came up with the original idea, and we've been tweaking this for quite some time.
I had to share that good news!
What are some milestones you've accomplished in your writing, insignificant or significant?
