Coaxing Characters into Life

This is the work of a writer.

To take the daydream, the real and the honest and make note of it. To compose with words the stories of life which comes from the characters who live it. Some of them I know personally and some I dream up but when they collide with paper they must be coaxed to into breathing the words of a written language. I must apply the verbs and adjectives to give them shape. Inhaling as a noun and exhaling an unfolding drama, their story.

It is the only way to share with the reader.
