Terry McMillan–I Love My Characters

Terry McMillan is one the most famous and successful writers of her time because she knows how to really connect with her audience. And the reason why she understands how to do that is because she knows how to make great characters and she knows how to listen to them. She doesn’t tell her characters what to do, she lets them tell her what she wants them to do and who they are and by really listening, she creates really honest characters who people love. This is a master class in how to write compelling fiction—after this convo I will never look at characters the same ever again. This is a must for anyone who aspires to be a successful writer. And check out Terry’s new novel It’s Not All Downhill From Here.
