Being a writer, a successful one, requires not just imagination. Imagination is important, but more than this one needs empathy. How can you write a character other than yourself if you can’t become that character? And how can you become that character without an open heart that feels all of their ups and downs?
Imagination may paint their features, empathy paints their souls.
