Hmmm… This is really kind of hard to boil down into a succinct response, but I will try. (Took a screencap so that you’d be able to reply easier)
When I write, I go with my gut. I tell stories that I personally am interested in writing, which makes sense, right? Why would you write characters…
I would like to say I had already thought about those things you said about there being no deifnitive formula, but I cannot. It just didn’t occur to me while I was trying to write, even though I understand it on an intellectual level. Thanks, this has been eye-opening already!
I loved your post, looking forward to hearing more from you!
