I asked Judith Kirscht the following:
How does an author stay with a character when: 1. Writing over a long period of time? 2. Writing multiple stories? 3. Writing a story (or stories) with multiple characters?
Rereading what I've written, getting back into the story is the best way of getting started again. If I'm using multiple points of view I read only the other sections from that character's POV. I should also add that if I am using multiple POVs, I initially write each character's story to the point where I really feel I'm walking in their shoes. Much of that won't end up in the book, but it helps to re-enter their head later.
Writers are creative people. They take their readers to other worlds, on adventures, solving a mystery, finding romance - but sometimes they have to find other ways to harness their creative energy.
For author, Judith Kirscht, it is loving basenjis.
