Adventuring Within the Pages

by Kat Warhound
(Decatur, Alabama, North America)

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!

Living inside your own book

Both writers and actors do exactly what you suggest.

The more a writer can visualize a situation, the better the writer can put that information onto the page so the reader can visualize it, too.
