I think everyone has been asking that question once…what if you were to ask yourself that question once again, what would you answer?
I have been pondering on it for a while and came up with quite a list in my mind:
– I am a Child of God
– I am saved through my Lord and Savior
– I am a wife of an amazing husband (even if life is never easy-God never said it would be-we have a great savior as an anchor in our marriage)
– I am a mom of three (hopefully, God’s willing more!) awesome children
– I am a writer. i would spend my entire time writing novels if I could. (Time issues!)
– I am now a distributor of It Works products (Natural beauty products, awesome by the way! 😉 )
– I am pro-life and I stand for The Bible
– I am fragile and strong
– I am quiet and noisy
………………………….and the list goes on and on and on
But truly WHO AM I?
As you create your protagonist, antagonist, and characters, are you making a list of how they are? Or who they’re supposed to be? Their evolution throughout your story?
KEEP IN MIND their evolution through the story, just like you & me, we grow as we move on, day after day.
Don’t make your characters flat with no flavor.
Don’t give all the information at once, give us some crumbs throughout the story so we discover the protagonist as we read along. Per instance, we see a protagonist as strong and determined, just to discover in the next chapter that he/she is fragile and have a nervous breakdown…you need to balance everything and give us a pallet of emotions!
As for the final “Who am I”, let us discover the big picture at the end! 🙂
