Basing Stories on Characters

"The most important quality you can give your character is the capacity to care."
- Ellen Jackson

The easiest way to write a story is to base it on a character. Mapping out a plot and all its details can be tiresome and less flexible. Characters can create plot, as a storyline relies on the power of its characters. By focusing on character, the human aspect of writing will come out more. If an author delves far enough into a character, the reader who see themselves in them. When we have made this connection with the reader, the book is as interesting as living life itself.
