Today I would like to welcome AJ Williams, joining us with her recent release and third book in the Bounty Series - Bounty For Love!
What is the art of storytelling? Is it the way we love the story? Is it the fact that we know the beginning, middle and end? Are the characters and their adventures what we crave the most?
Several things go into storytelling. The main thing is to have an interesting story. I mean really, who want to read a boring story. Are there times when we get to a point in the book and we are screaming for the book to move forward? SURE... I won't lie I have been there times myself. The key is to find who you want to read your books. Zero in on that audience.
Okay next is that you have to make sure that your story flows like a regular conversation. Often at time, we read something and like wow that could so happen in real life. Drawing from real conversations helps to bring the author and the reader closer.
With any story, it is important that each character have an individual voice. A female character and a male character should not talk the same. Nor should they have the same mannerism. Sure, there are things that we might say similar to our male and female counterparts, but as individuals, we turn that similarity and make it our own.
I can tell you I say dork a lot different than my husband does. LOL
The key to remember I feel is that no matter the story from the beginning, middle or end, or the characters themselves. The key in the story is your love of either writing or reading about what happens next.
