Chapter 9 - I Heart Thomas
I’ve been told that my character development is one of my greatest strengths as an author. People have connected with my characters and can’t stop reading because they need to find out what happens to them. I think it’s a good thing that my readers take a vested interest in what happens to my characters. So I guess what I like most about my characters is that people seem to like and relate to them.
My favorite character is Thomas from Among the Shrouded. When I first started writing I didn’t connect with him. I had trouble writing from his point of view and I think it was mainly because he was the first male character I’d attempted to convey. I kept asking men, “what do you think Thomas would think about this?” to which the men would respond, “Nothing, men don’t think!” Thomas eventually found his voice once I got to really know him and he became my absolute favorite. He grew as a character and yet remained true to himself. I love that about him. And he’s cute in my head, so there’s that.
This is were you get to read about what's going on inside my head. I apologize in advance - the place is a wreck.
