Amen! And even though it might go without saying, wear it like a crown of glory!
Welcome to Story Embers… My name is Wordsmith. *my… she never would have guessed* Well… maybe that isn’t actually my name, at least as legal documents go. But I guess it is what you may call me.
I too greatly enjoy the intricacies of linguistics, in which you will find the subcategory of grammar. And yes… creating a character… It is something else. My favorite thing… though not to create the character himself (or herself)… is the paint the character. I want you to be able to see that character, be in the moment with that character, even to the degree that I forget what it means to be a character.
This is one of my major weaknesses as a writer. I get so involved in smooth transitions, and lovely images, that I forget about character relations. I forget what makes a character… I have to work hard to make a character a character.
I look very much forward to getting to know you better.
