A face for "Magdalena"
Magdalena's writing tip of the day is "EMPATHY"
Make your reader care about your hero. With empathy we begin to feel characters emotions. We begin to care and root for them. Choose strong nouns and verbs to push that hero forward, and let their drama unfold with each turn of the page. Remember: It's not the destination, but the journey.
