Welcome to Day 334...
And something not to forget when writing your novel...
I'm talking about those thoughts inside everyone's heads... the grocery list...the not so nice opinion about a friend's new haircut...the real words we want to say to our boss when she tells us our deadlines been moved up a week.
It's important to make those inner thoughts or that inner dialogue part of your story.
Inner dialogue is part of who we are as humans.
It reveals unspoken truths the character holds or believes.
It can help a person or character sort through an external conflict.
It can reveal weakness or power that only the reader is clued in to. That in turn can bind the reader more completely to the character and story. It's as though the reader is let in on secrets that the other characters know nothing about.
It is an important tool for discerning and in some cases compartmentalizing deep feelings of fear, hope, love.
It helps the reader understand a character's internal conflicts and motivation.
It adds depth to a scene. Characters can be doing and ordinary activity and task, but the inner dialogue will add more color, more emotion, and more dimension to a scene.
