Tuesday's Writer's Tip - It's Your World #BWLAuthor #MFRWAuthor #writing #Plots #World

When you set out to write a story, it's your world you're showing to the readers. There are a few things to remember when placing characters in this world. Making the hero or heroine totally wonderful won't make the reader want to read on. Making the antagonist thoroughly evil also won't set your reader to turning pages. What you need to do is give your characters a well rounded personality. Yes she or he should win what they're looking for but making them opposed by a really bad guy isn't going to make the reader want to know more. Both kinds of characters need assets and flaws. So your heroine is stubborn and refuses to listen to others. This can lead her into trouble. Trouble is what makes the story work. And the villain to have no quality that makes him or her human won't win the reader's attention. Showing those little traits that are in opposition to what they are protraying in the story draws the reader in. So remember it's your world you're creating and so are the people living in the pages.  Give the hero or heroine great qualities but also show their flaws. As for the villain show him a bit of humanity along with his bad traits.
