As I sat going through the many critiques received for the chapter, I ran into one that put to the side until the end as it talked about how I could add more to the scene, basically as the saying goes with writers, I could add some meat and flesh to the bones.
So I contemplated on how to better bring to life the scene. In the end, this person was right. It added some much needed depth as I try to delve deeper into my characters emotions. The part of the book I am working on is so critique as I go through Cat’s journey. There is so much I can and need to share with reader so they can feel along with her.
And the amazing part is that I am really starting to learn what this means. To be able to make up a completely fictional character and get the reader to fall in love with him or her is special. I love how God has taken me on this journey to discover the craft of fiction writing. He has allowed me this outlet as I continue on my grief journey.
I am able to implement a part of me into the story. In the end, I think anyone who knows me will probably see just a little bit of me in every story. Yet at the same time they will get to see into a whole new world of characters. The reader will get to take a journey with them as they learn to live and deal with what has been handed to them.
If you think about it, how kewl is that. I love it. So, I say thank you to anyone who is willing to take this journey along with me.
