Sloane on writing a character

by on 14/04/04 at 1:00 am

The character that is rendered too meticulously often fails to convince. Too little is left for the reader to contribute out of himself. General physical descriptions are usually enough; the reader will supply his own visual image and because it is his own it will be a reality for him. –William Sloane, The Craft of Writing
