Be there for your characters; somewhere in the breadth of infinity, they’re real.  They’re not there to make you feel godlike, or to answer to whimsical demands.  They’re there for you to suffer with, to experience glory with, and I think that if they sense you’re with them, then your readers will sense that as well.  

IMHO, THAT is how you transcend doctrine and structure, and THAT is how you transmit a story.

  1. Sometimes those characters have a mind of their own and go off in a different direction. I was writing a story about a fairy godmother and suddenly, I realised he was a fairy god FATHER! I stuck out my tongue at him and kept writing.

  2. I think this might be one of the reason why many of the writers are day dreamers, productive day dreamers. An excellent piece of advice for all the wanna-be -writers. 🙂
