FREE YOUR STORY

How do you write powerful emotion in fiction? In this video one of our tutors, Paul McVeigh, talks about how he connects to his characters, and thereby connects them to the reader.

"Rather than saying my character is this person and here’s where they are emotionally, rather than telling us that, you show us. . . If you think people were reading me, what would they be taking away? So you say, what are the things my eye catches? Why is that important to me? What do I remember?"
