There are two main parts to any novel; plot and characters. For me plot is easy; I find I have a natural talent for story telling, but I’m beginning to see while my plot can be kickass without equally kickass characters it will fall flat.
So I went on a crazy character spree. I googled, went to bookstores, and searched within myself until I came up with some useful things.
After all my research these are the questions I came up with to answer for each character. I found answering them gave me insight into each character that defined them as individuals.
