Writing Tip- Characters

Sometimes the best characters are the most flawed characters. Being beautiful, smart, charming, clever, and skilled is all great, but real people aren’t perfect. And, usually, we love people more for their imperfections than anything else.

Would you rather read about a wealthy girl with beauty and smarts to spare, or one who, despite all the odds, keeps fighting?

In “To Kill a Wizard,” my main character, Rose, comes from a poor background. In so many ways, life has been unfair to her, but she never stops to pity her circumstances. Instead, she’s constantly searching for a way to better her situation and find a little happiness in life. And there’s something about that simple desire that made her come alive for me, that made writing her story all the easier.

About lisamorrowbooks

Lisa Morrow is a life-long reader who treasures fantasy in all forms. Being a middle child in a large family gave her a unique perspective on the world, but few experiences compare to her time spent studying abroad in Cambridge, England and wandering throughout Europe. After her travels, Lisa settled down in Arizona to teach junior high English, and later, to spend time with her young children, husband, and cats. To some people, her life may seem quiet. But to her, every day is spent in a world colored by the imagination of children, and fantastical worlds created by her very own mind.
