Wow! So many helpful suggestions and a lively conversation. Thanks Michele and Rebecca
Best session yet! Now I need to go back to my manuscript and see where I found the characters' humanity in these layers, and where I didn't. I'm hopeful it will help me address the question of why readers should care about this woman who's done some bad stuff in the past (and some in the present). Thanks so much, Michelle and Rebecca!
