I’ve been following Joe Bunting’s The Write Practice and getting his newsletters. They’re awesome here’s the link: The Write Practice
And one of the most significant things I’ve learned is that I am the voice of my characters, that without me, their stories remain unheard.
It has helped a lot with my writer’s block. But it has also opened my eyes to the depth of their personalities. That they are more than just words on paper. They feel, felt and will feel. They manifest into the world through my words. They are, in a clear sense of the word, real.
And that. Terrifies me.
