L is for Love. Love for the written word. Love for stories and books. How can I forget the love we feel for characters; both the ones we write and the ones other writers create. I get so attached to some characters when I am reading books that I cry when I read their death scenes.
I fell in love with Dumbledore and Dobby in the Potter books. I made the pages wet when both Dumbledore and Dobby died.
When I read The fault in our stars, I fell in love with both the characters: Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus “Gus” Waters. Every time Hazel and Gus suffered I cried.
I feel that it’s my love for my characters that sees me scared to put them in trouble. I also hope that I create characters readers fall in love with and identify with.
Do you have any characters that you love to the sense of completely identifying with them? Do you love your own characters to the point of making things easy for them?
