I'm on @WritersDigest talking about tackling character consistency today. Drop on by to win Polish Your Fiction!

Hope you all had a fab weekend!

Did you watch the World Cup Final last night? Despite being half German, and living in Greece, I was rooting for Argentina. But every single team I root for ends up losing. Perhaps their loss is all my fault. :-)

On a more positive note, I'm on Writer's Digest today, talking about tackling character consistency. I'm also giving away a copy of Polish Your Fiction!

Comment on this post for the chance to win.


Have a great week!

  1. I had to be logged in as a member to comment, which I'm not, so I'll comment here. I liked the idea of writing down all the characters' traits and combing the manuscript to make sure those traits are consistent. Excellent suggestion.


“I'm using my art to comment on what I see. You don't have to agree with it.” ~John Mellencamp

“Allowing an unimportant mistake to pass without comment is a wonderful social grace” ~Judith S. Marin

“I don't ever try to make a serious social comment.” ~Paul McCartney

“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch

“Probably what my comment meant was that I don't care about the circumstances if I can tell the truth.” ~Sally Kirkland

“We're not going to pay attention to the silliness and the petty comments. And quite frankly, women have joined me in this effort, and so it's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness.” ~Katherine Harris
