Examples Of Unresolved Sexual Tension In Fiction, And How To Replicate Them

Unresolved sexual tension means the chemistry between two characters that shows they are attracted to one another, but they don’t act on. They might choose not to act on it because of a friendship, loyalties to others, or because they work together.

How To Write Perseverance As A Character Trait

Your characters will all have different qualities. You need to give your characters distinct personalities to ensure they are clean and interesting. If all your characters blur into one, they will be boring. You need to give some characters positive traits, and others need to be more negative. However, there are going to be certain qualities that are useful in both the Protagonist and Antagonist of your story. I’ll be exploring the use of perseverance as a character trait.

How To Write A Redemption Arc

When you arc a character, you take them from one mental state to another, and you let your audience in on that journey. This could be from weak to strong, angry to happy, or enemies to lovers. It allows your characters to grow and change through your story which makes them more interesting and relatable. In this post, I’ll be looking specifically at how to write a redemption arc.

How To Write Magical Schools In Urban Fantasy

Urban fantasy is a genre where fantasy creations, such as witches and monsters, exist within our normal mundane world. Sometimes these magical creatures are known about, such as in The Nevers, and other times they’re kept hidden, such as in Harry Potter. When you’re writing urban fantasy, it’s likely that your fantasy characters will need a private space within their urban community. This often takes the form of magical schools or other training facilities. I’ll explore things you need to consider when creating that environment.

How To Write Personality Quirks

Your characters need to represent a real to life experience of being around people. Characters that read as artificial will stop your audience from connecting with them. If they can’t connect with them, they’ll care less about the story they’re on and be less willing to finish your book or film. A really good way of making sure your characters feel real to your readers is to give the personality quirks.

How To Follow Your Story Not Your Plot

Planning your story well can make the writing process easier. You won’t wander off on side adventures or get muddled as you build to the climax because you’ve already decided where you’re going. A story plan can make sure you go in with characters already developed and ready to move, and plot twists ready to construct. However, even the most carefully built story plan can become more of a burden than an aid. I’ll be exploring reasons why you should be willing to follow your story as it develops, rather than stick rigidly to a pre prepared story plan.

How To Develop Your Characters By What Your Story Needs

When you first start writing your story, you’ll probably go in knowing who your Protagonist is. Your protagonist is the main character and it’s their story you’re telling, so that makes sense. However, unless you’re telling a one person story, you’ll need other characters. For some people they need to plot and plan all their characters in advance. But, if you’re more like me, you’ll want to develop your characters as your story unfolds. I’ll teach you how.

How To Write Characters Who Feel Alive Beyond The Limitations Of Your Story

The characters of your story are the main draw for your audience. Your plot and world can be fascinating, but if the characters are flat, the story will feel flat. Characters who feel alive make your story feel real, and that makes it more exciting for your audience.
