Random Writing Reminders

Confession time (is it just me or do I have quite a few of these?): I haven’t been writing anything for a good while. At least, not anything I consider ‘legitimate’ aside from blog posts. So while I was writing a short story for the first time in forever the other day, I had a relevationary (The Good Dinosaur has ruined me) revelationary (not an actual word) moment where some random writing reminders popped into my head.

Therefore, here I have a short list of random but important reminders to keep in mind while writing, mostly concerning characters:

-A single character comes across differently from different characters’ perspectives.

-Most of your characters think differently than you do.

-A character you like can find another character you like annoying – not all characters that you like necessarily like each other as well.

-Every character has an intricate and unique background that has shaped who they are regardless of how flat they seem.

-Actions speak louder than words, and words can have different meanings depending on how they’re read.
