One way to make a story really come alive is by giving your reader or listener characters that really resonate. The plot is the character’s story. By telling us a story about someone we can like, be interested in, or identify with, the writing grabs our attention and often our emotions.

Not only will an interesting character get us into the story, it also helps us remember your theme or moral after we put the book back on the shelf. That’s one of the biggest awards for the author.

This month, over on The Write Conversation, I wrote about some tips to help make your characters more real and more acceptable. I hope you like it and you can leave any messages below.
