The Write Approach returns in 2024 with more practical discussions for authors. We start with interviewing Deborah Williams about making your story relatable to readers. You protagonist is likely going to bring different experiences to the table than your readers have ever experienced. Still, it is imperative that the reader is able to make an emotional connection with the protagonist, which you achieve through relatability. In Episode 56, Deborah Williams gets into the weeds about things authors can do to achieve that. It's also important to note that being relatable is not the same as being likable.

We first encountered Deborah Williams by reading her article, What It Means to Make Your Story Relatable.
