When you first start your story, you must carefully consider your goals with the story.

You might start by asking yourself: what are you trying to say? How important is a happy ending, or does your character exist to have a good time?

Decide how you will best communicate what you want to convey once you have a clear idea of what you want to say. You have to be practical and realistic as the custodian of these characters.

Make sure your message is tailored to the audience you are addressing. You have to know that there will be ups and downs, and to keep readers on your side; your character should suffer setbacks and disappointments.

In writers, an upbeat attitude brings out a particular voice. This voice often reflects their personality, making their writing engaging and effective. A positive attitude can also help writers to stay motivated and inspired when tackling a challenging project. In addition to overcoming writer’s block, positivity can also inspire creativity.

But what if you wanted a fresh way to look at the word?

I suppose you could argue that you have to be positive to write a positive character. I’m sure that’s a common practice among some writers.

However, I feel that could harm the quality of content they produce and is counterproductive in getting the words on the page.

It would be best if you always pushed yourself to see it from their point of view, which might not necessarily be yours.

I’m not of the school that you need to be in love to write about love.
