Question: What do you love most about writing fiction?
For me, the best part about writing fiction has little to do with the process but the aftermath. I love the impact my stories have on my readers. I love when my readers feel a powerful connection with the characters and the struggles they face on their journeys. When I see readers write about how much they loved my stories and related to the characters in them, it’s my greatest reward. The whole reason I write is to emotionally connect with and/or inspire my readers; so, I want them to relate to each character and understand their individual struggles and circumstances as if they were their own, whether or not the character is likable. When readers connect and understand a fictional character and their journey, those are the best moments in any writer’s life, because those are the moments when their character truly becomes alive. They are the moments when I as a writer feel my goal for that story has been accomplished.
