A big part of what makes writing "good" or "bad" is the way people are described. The difference between a book that you read to the end and one you put down and don't pick back up is interest.
What makes you like a character in the story you read? Is it because they look a certain way? Is it because they think a certain way? Why do we like imaginary people?
That's what we're thinking about this week.
How would you describe yourself in a story? Think about more than what you look like – what makes you laugh? What makes you cry? How do you show love? Think deeper than skin.
