Looking forward to meeting the new online class in April! There are some places are still available – details @writingnsw REPOST • @writingnsw What makes a gripping novel? How do characters communicate? When is a trope a trope too far?

Ahead of his online writing course, RWR McDonald spoke to us about writing story through characters and dialogue.

‘I like to write myself into the story and get to know characters through their interaction with each other. Dialogue is hugely important for me to discover who they are, their relationship to each other, and that wonderful thing of what is not said, or what they actually think. Once I have a start to a story, I spend a lot of time thinking about who these characters are, their background, what they were doing before we first meet them on the page.’
