Thunder Punch Daily 14 – Compassion For Your Characters

Some more talk about characters and why we might consider using compassion when writing them. It’s my belief that if you treat your characters as human beings, others will respond to them as such. Even if they’re not human. A high ideal in writing is to name your characters’ faults with love, so as not to be a snob, or worse, create characters meant merely to be hissed at by the audience (though that can be fun as well).

Also threw a shout-out to Brandon Dayton’s blog. Some terrific reading on writing there!
