George, the teacher

I have learned so much writing George’s story, but probably the most important thing I’ve learned, well two most important things I’ve learned is:

1. Trust my characters. If they say an event happened a certain way, than it happened that way. If they mention a conversation and the words that they or someone else said, write the words that they say. Not how I think the conversation should happen.

2. When I trust my characters amazing things happen. When I trust my characters and write their story, not the one I want, a story that is much better than one I could ever imagine will be told, connections will be made throughout the story that I couldn’t have dreamed of, and characters will develop in ways I never saw coming.

Thank you, George! It has been and still is an honor writing your story!
