When Characters Become People
from Writer's Digest
Lisa Lieberman Doctor, author of the writing book,
Accidental Poetry: Improve Your English Through Creative Writing
, writes: "Create people, not characters. This was Hemingway's advice to authors, and I humbly concur. It's long been my belief that when writers connect to their characters through their own dark emotional colors of shame, fear and anger, they'll find not only a rich common ground, but also that which motivates their characters' behavior and therefore makes them understandable to readers."
