Rookie on the loose

Hello All :)
I have been writing since I was small but have never yet completed a novel. I am finally ready to change that and believe in order to do so, I need to learn all I can from other experts in the field.
My current struggle is that in my head my characters are completely three dimensional with huge personality and dreams. But when I write them, they are flat as a pancake. It is a great injustice to my poor characters and to the plot. I can see the world they live in clear as day, but my descriptions either fall short or feel very corny.
I am ready as a sponge to soak up any advice you all are ready to give :)
Slainte,
Cu Mara

Hi Cu Mara. Welcome! What you're feeling is normal. Unfortunately, the only way to bring your characters to life is to read and write through the learning curve. For the great majority of us! Good luck!

Welcome Cu Mara!
We all have to start somewhere and I'm sure you'll learn a ton here, I sure have.
