Characters’ Actions Define Them

Thomas Jefferson’s quote applies to the characters we develop as well. When we writers show how the characters take action, the readers know them on a deeper level and keep turning the pages.

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act.

Action will delineate and define you.”  

~Thomas Jefferson
