Writing As The Other – Buzzfeed

Hey Everyone! Happy Wednesday!

I came across this, during the many times I read about writing versus actually focusing long enough to write, and I thought I’d share it. It’s an interesting article I found on Buzzfeed written by Daniel Jose Older about writing as the other.  Check it out here!

The article has some helpful hints, and has quotes from James Wong, and one of my personal favorites, Junot Diaz.  Escaping your own perspective is an integral tool to crafting characters that both stray from tired cliche’ and add an important depth that adds to the experience of getting to know them.  Anyway check it out, and as always happy scribbling!
