I decided to take on this challenge by "interviewing" my main character. I asked my main character a few questions and had her answer in her voice. This exercise helped me develop her personality, her name, the name of her friends and to research cultural dynamics to help make my story more authentic.
I would like to continue with this exercise at some point this week to further develop my character and my story. I'm also hoping that this dialogue will branch out to help develop the personalities of some of my other characters.
Getting more excited about writing each day! I'm feeling more confident with each assignment. This quote really sums up my mood for today..
