RENEE AHDIEH: Investing Deeply In Your Characters & Combatting Anxiety With Gratitude And Empathy

“Success can be a moment, fulfillment is a lifetime.” -Renee Ahdieh (Click to tweet)   We have #1 New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh of The Wrath and the Dawn and The Rose and the Dagger duology in today’s brand new episode brought to you by Vermont College of Fine Arts. We break down Renée’s character-driven writing process and delve into building multi-dimensional characters. Renée takes it one step further and generously walks us through exactly how she sets up a scene to highlight the main character’s attributes. It’s the perfect example of the infamous show-don’t-tell rulefor writers. We discuss why it’s important to be responsible and respectful when writing about different cultures, and why we have to allow ourselves latitude in our writing. As if the episode couldn’t get any better, we dive even deeper and deconstruct what it means to have anxiety and how to combat it with gratitude and empathy.
