Making Characters Breathe

First, on a personal note, let me wish a happy, happy birthday to Becca. Love you, Sweetie!

Today's fiction writing lesson from the web is a fun piece I found by writing coach and independent editor, Lucia Zimmitti. She takes you through some writing exercises designed to help you create seeming-real, flesh-and-blood characters who will not only breathe, but will breathe life into your work.

She does this by using, among other things, a few pages from your character's diary, a doctor's report, and a job application.

Have fun with this one!
