The hardest part about writing fiction is finding long stretches of time to do it: for me, this means writing mostly on Saturdays and Sundays. But I am always thinking about my characters, jotting down ideas in stolen moments and hoping I’ll be able to make sense of them when the weekend rolls around.
Character development is what I value most as a reader of fiction. If an author can manage to create the sort of characters who feel fully real, who I find myself worrying about while I’m walking through the grocery store aisles a week later, that to me is as close to perfection as it gets.
Julie Courtney Sullivan is an American novelist and former writer for The New York Times. Sullivan grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts.
