9/23 – Fiction Writing Unit Day 3

Today I’ll do a short mini lesson on two terms we hear a lot in fiction writing:

  • Interiority
  • Character soup

Interiority – has to do with how you SHOW (rather than tell) what’s going on inside a character. This is something you want MORE of.

Character soup – happens when you introduce too many characters who may be perfectly distinct to you, but blur together into a big bowl of character soup for your reader. You don’t need to get everyone in your story on stage in the first five pages. 🙂 This is something you want NONE of.
