I am an opinionated person. Spend more than a few days around me and you’ll learn this pretty quick. I am not afraid to speak up, speak out, and make myself heard.
Characters need opinions too. They need a stance on subjects that concern their lives. Even if you are writing in a fantasy-feudal world, the characters will have opinions on the queen, on the weather, on the baker or the village over the hill. People are full of opinions, and they can add so much to a story. don’t shortchange your readers – let them see how vivid a world you have created.
Take care, fellow travelers.
