When we write, it’s important to give ourselves plenty of time and space to think. But what about our characters? Giving characters the opportunity to express themselves can teach us a lot about the story we need to tell. And by directing that expression toward another character, it can teach us about the relationships in our stories at the same time. A lot of this might not make it to the page, but it will deepen our stories- and possibly change the course they take!
Write a note from one of your characters to another. This note can take whatever form you want- a letter, an email, a to-do list, maybe even a particularly long-winded text message. Don’t worry too much about the format or what you will keep. Just get in that voice and that moment and write.
As always, please post your response in the comments section so everyone can read it.
