Torture Your Characters

Hand on WindowThe whole reason for a story

is that we have something to say about something

important to us.

Often these moments come from

either experiencing or sharing the

experience of another who has suffered in some way.

If nothing significant happens to our

beloved characters

throughout the story

then how are we, and thus our readers, to

find meaning in the sharing?

It’s the journey of suffering that brings

significance to character and plot.

We must bleed in our writing for

others to hear our words.
