I had a really good week this week! I've been revising so my word count wasn't as high as past weeks, but I'm really loving how the story is shaping up.
I've concentrated on working through the emotional layer of the characters. I've been digging deeper so that not only will my characters feel the impact, but my readers will as well. Which means I'm not going to say "She was frustrated," I'm going to say, "She dug her fingernails into her palm until it hurt." It's about not just telling the story, but experiencing it, if that makes sense. So, that's what I've been working on in my revision.
A free writing guide that has helped me look for ways to dig deeper when I'm crafting emotion can be found here. Jordan McCollum offers several helpful writing guides and gives great examples on how to put more depth and layers into your writing. Worth your time!
