Have you seen the Hamlet with David Tenant and Patrick Stewart? One of my favorite performances ever. I watched it again with my cousin last week, and while I was basking in the glorious soliloquies, I started to wonder . . .
What would my characters say, given a moment to face the camera and speak their mind?
So this is my challenge to you this week, my friends:
Pick a character at a certain point in your novel, and soliloquize.
My problem is that I write too many soliloquies and have to edit most of them out. Because I love to know what’s on my characters’ minds, and I want each of them to be in the spotlight and give their opinion. But mostly, they’re not needed and I just hoard all that information to myself. 🙂
Haha, that’s awesome! 🙂 No wonder your characterization is so amazing!
Aww… thanks! That’s one thing I’m always worried about, that my characters aren’t individual enough.
