Sorry for the short post today, but I’m still working feverishly to polish up part one of a Q&A for you tomorrow–my loooooong phone conversation with the author of The Lace Reader, Brunonia Barry. My fingers aren’t bleeding…yet.
So Kath and I put our heads together recently to discuss a new craft topic for May. And we made a decision we’re both happy with. Beginning next week, and continuing through the end of May, you’ll see a variety of posts on characterization. What are the ingredients of a believable character–a protagonist, an antagonist. How should likability factor in? Should you use real people to help develop characters, or use other techniques? How can tags help to reveal character, and more.
Kath and I would be happy to hear any of your particular requests about characterization, as she and I will be posting on this topic several times (in other words, HELP! Tell us what you’d like!).
Brenda Novak’s Children Diabetes Auction starts tomorrow, too. Check out all of the things you might bid on HERE, to support a really good cause (ht Donna Caubarreaux).
Write on, all!
