Over the years, I've learned a few things about writing: Maintain the same verb tense throughout your story; make the characters appealing; Know your audience. However, one thing that I've focused on recently is fear. Every character needs to have a weakness to make them more realistic. Whether it's a fear of heights, fear of snakes, or fear of commitment [ :) ], we all fear something, even the seemingly bravest of us.
SO, what's your fear? What makes you recoil? Me? I'm afraid of most dogs. Attacked when I was little. That, and I have slight claustrophobia tendencies. What about you?
Can't wait to hear from you,
