Play God in the role of your Character

Do you become paralyzed by the possibilities of your writing?   How about the characters you want to develop in your story?  Try different angles to your story and bring each character along the path.  As your story unfolds each character must react to it.  The key is to make it seem real in life, as it happened today.

For example,  if a child is hit and killed by a car, the driver’s life is changed forever, the parents’ lives, the lives of the brothers and sisters, friends, even the crossing guard and bystanders. You have to decide what the changes are. You must decide. This is your chance to play God — and if you’re going to write you must play that role. God is in the details, and God decides the course of the novel.

Quote: Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself. ~ Truman Capote

  1. Hi Paula,

    I have had several requests from you to join various social networks. I do not believe in their worth, especially those that are in a facebook formate.. The only network I share comments or postings is WordPress blog sites, including of course, my own. I would welcome any personal e-mails, you would wish to sent me: Such exchanges are constantly monitored by my Smart phone. Thank You,

    Yes. And sometimes it wreaks havoc on emotion… a good thing, because if I don’t feel it, I don’t write it.
