Today I gave the time I usually spend writing this post to something both more urgent and more important.
Studying “the experiences of selfhood” through the characters we create.
According to this research, as a thirty-seven-year-old highly creative and productive person, my next project might in fact be MY BEST WORK.
The problems with giving characters possibilities that aren’t available to the reader.
On the words you choose and the style they imply.
Should you set your book in a generalized or specific time period?
Should you choose a setting that actually exists, or make one up?
Just because you’re setting your book in “the real world” doesn’t mean you get to skip the worldbuilding process.
What do you choose when your choices are limited?
