Adventuring Within the Pages

The best thing you could ever do is to go into the book itself. To go into the world that you/will create(d) and meet your characters. Don't just slap a few phrases down and assume that your reader will imagine it themselves. You have to ask yourself questions like:
*What are they thinking?
*How would I feel in that situation?
* How would a person like my character react to this?
*What did I feel like when this/something like this happened to me?
*How does their past influence their decision?
Getting inside the book and not thinking like a writer but a character is the best way to convey the most realistic, entertaining, heart-rending, laughter-evoking, and all around great book!
