I like to write this stuff because it is easy to think about my writing style. But when you talk to someone, they may not even have the means to do it. A few weeks ago, I took a semester of college and decided I wanted to be involved in something different. A few weeks of writing has given me a little bit of the inspiration to write more. I’m trying to get a feel for the style of writing and the different sections that I write.
This is my second attempt to write a character, which is the story. I’m trying to get a feel for the characters, but I’m not sure I’m able to get enough depth to write them. I’m trying to get the characters to express themselves and how they perceive things.
One thing I’ve learned about writing is that you have to give your reader the ability to be a character, otherwise they won’t read it. This isn’t only about writing a character who is the main character, but writing one who is the main character’s POV. If you don’t give your readers a reason to care about the characters being different, then they won’t read it.
What Im trying to get across to myself is that Im not a writer. I don’t know how to write and I dont know what exactly Im trying to say. I’m really not sure what I want to say, but I want to say it.
That’s why it’s important you tell your reader their characters’ backstories. It shows them that your readers are more like you than they are like the characters. That would be a huge step forward.
Of course, we all have our own backstories, but that doesn’t mean we should have them be the same as our characters. If I, for example, am a writer who doesn’t tell my readers why a character is doing something, then my readers can’t relate to that character. They’ll just think, “Oh, they’re just like me.” I know this happens a lot, but it’s important to point out that you’re not telling your readers what to think.
If you are going to introduce readers to your characters it helps to get a few details right. Theres no way you can just say, “My character is a soldier who is a bit of a jerk.” That just sounds like a bad way to start the book. There are a lot of details that can help a reader connect with a character and it means you dont have to go into detail when introducing a new character.
Are you saying you don’t think about the character or the story? If so, then youre being a little self-sabotaging. There are some things that are good but not all of them are good or just right.
I think it is just that your not giving enough stuff away. If you only give away the general idea of the book then it will be easier for people to read it. In your first paragraph, you state that the main character is a soldier. I dont see how you explain his background and reasons for being a soldier. I also dont see how you explain that he is a jerk.
For starters, i think it is difficult to explain a soldier’s background, I also dont understand that he is a jerk. I think that to do that, you need to give more information about him.
