Here’s three things to keep in mind while you’re creating those stories. I love them because they’re simple, easy to understand and effective.
1. Take your characters to a dark place. ASAP
2. Have your characters make the wrong decision. BAD is GOOD–HORRIBLE is BETTER
3. Give your characters a secret. What do they have under the bed? What don’t they want anyone in the world to know? YUMMM. Love those secrets.
