We think of every scenario we can put our characters through—wait, characters? Yep, those people who our readers become so invested in they cry with them, laugh with them, sometimes get so frustrated with them they wanna smack them. They’re one reason our stories exist and one way we hook our reader into continuing on. How do we get to that moment where our readers become that invested in our characters?

こんにちわ From Japan

Moving to a new country is a daunting task. It can be overwhelming, terrifying, and exciting all at one time. Do you have everything you need? Are you mentally prepared for the culture shock?

Let’s Get Historical: The Starting Point to Historical Fiction

Ah yes, historical writing; it’s one of my favorite genres, because this is where we can see our text going beyond what we have written.
