Life is messy.  Write stories and articles that are messy.


GRUMPY, etc.

Sometimes people can be grumpy, growly, reticent, morose, blustery, ego trippers, overbearing, in your face, too much of something.  So your characters should be the same.


I know so many people that the instant they speak you know who is talking even if you’re blindfolded.  Your characters should have that kind of unique voice that they are instantly recognizable before you write, “so and so said.


Think it.  Write it.  Feel it.  Be it.
