Overview

'Whose story do I want to tell?' The answer to this question will jumpstart the writing process – and will inevitably lead you towards character narratives. Amy Bloom is an American novelist and psychotherapist. Bloom has been nominated for the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. She has also contributed to The New York Times and Vogue.

With Bloom's insight, delve into your past and observe your present to find inspiration for those whose story you want to craft and share with the world. When you're ready to put words in their mouths, seek to write every line of dialogue as a way to illuminate the character and serve the plot.

Favorite Quote

"For me, writing characters and writing novels is just an experiment in self-knowledge. When you create characters, you find those characters in yourself, those parts of yourself that you may not really want to look at or you may not want to think about."

Valerie Martin, novelist
