We all love the way an actor brings a favorite character to life on the screen. And you can bring your characters to life on the page by thinking like an actor.

Give motivation to the scene by dynamic dialogue and a unique point of view. Where was your character and what was she thinking the moment before she stepped into the scene you’re writing?

A character with a strong point of view will drive the story forward by giving your readers a through-line to follow throughout each scene and each act. We need to know where they are coming from and what they want in order to care enough to follow their story.
