Writer’s Wisdom ~ Barbara Kingsolver

The greatest challenge, I think, for the novelist is that we have to love every one of our characters, even those who behave horribly, because we have to understand them. Otherwise, they won’t be convincing. Even the worst bully believes he’s a good guy. Nobody gets up in the morning and says, “I’m going to be a bad guy today.” Well, maybe they do, but they mean it in a positive way, thinking, “I’m going to do this because the world needs this.” ~ Barbara Kingsolver
