  1. Thanks for the link, glad you like the article.

  2. Sounds like very good advice: use your imagination to supplement your memory of small moments in your life and expand them to larger moments. Excellent sense.

    • I agree, Victoria. It makes a heck of a lot of sense: use your emotions the way actors do. Everyone has the same basic core emotions, after all.

      • Yes, the comparison to acting is an essential and important one; the accomplished writer “puts on” a different character in writing each character and narrative voice he or she assumes.
