I was reading Marianne's blog this morning about character driven stories. That's one thing I've been working on in the stories in progress now. I was working through Maass' Writing the Breakout Novel and that's something he stresses as well. And, it's something I know I need to work more on.
Lizzie and Fiona (my two main characters) both seem to me to be basically one-dimensional characters. And, I would be bored to tears with them if I were to pick them up and read about them. So... why do I want to continue with them? Because I believe in the stories and I KNOW they can be good stories. But, I'm still in the process of learning and utilizing the things I need to do. So... stay tuned and join me on the journey. And, any help you can offer or words of advice are very much welcomed and hoped for.
Also, what one "writing" book would you recommend and why?
Have a great day.
