“Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day.” Heraclitus
This rings true for everyone, including those individuals we writers create in our fiction. I was reminded of this by one of my students last week. She sent me an article about old age and what it's really like.
Author, Ceridwen Dovey, explores the issue of aging and the stereotypes writers sometimes attribute to our older characters. It’s a wonderful reminder to go deeper, ask more questions, and continually search for what makes your characters (at any age) who they are.
Enjoy the read.
