Sunday Character Talk: Vulnerability

fawn and weeds-5

What? Just because I’m five feet from a human and eating the weeds in her backyard doesn’t mean I’m vulnerable.

Most Sundays, I spend a little time watching TED talks.  This one, recorded in 2011 by Brene Brown, looks at vulnerability and what it means for human connection.

While I watched it, I realized vulnerability as described by Dr. Brown is the true underpinning of why I write the stories I write.  Why all my characters — my urban fantasy world and my contemporary romance world — are the way they are.

So I thought I’d share her talk here.

I considering making “Sunday Character Talk” an ongoing addition to my web site.  Comments are welcome.
