Confusing isn’t it? That’s why it became so important to create believable characters for A Ripple in Time; which deals with time travel. Characters should evolve with the story, if we knew everything about them within the first couple of pages, why bother reading on? Better writers than I have written about character development, I’m just happy that now and then, I manage to achieve it to readers’ satisfaction.
Writers write and readers read and often some do both. I think of myself as a reader who writes, and every time someone says they’ve enjoyed one of my offerings, it makes me smile. What makes me dance around the kitchen though, is when a fellow reader compliments the character development. This week, two complete strangers who connected with A Ripple in Time were kind enough to state publicly how much they enjoyed reading the story: Thank you kind readers, comments such as yours make it all worthwhile.
