Episode 20: Creating Character Empathy

Story beginnings vary, but empathy remains key. How do we make readers connect with our characters instantly? 


1. Highlight Extraordinary Qualities: Think Buffy's strength or Sherlock's intellect.

2. Position in a Unique World: Like Mark Watney's survival on Mars or the Gilmores in quirky Stars Hollow.

3. The "Save the Cat" Moment: Showcase a kind act, like Buffy befriending the outcast, Willow.


Combine these for a character that resonates deeply with readers!
