Now, it's your turn. A few of you have let me know how you make your characters come alive, but let's have an interactive lesson.
How do you, the writer, research your character so that he or she is a real person, not merely a
character in a book--or on the stage? Do you create their personalities with lists of emotional baggage or do you allow the character to develop a personality as you write?
How do you keep your characters three dimensional as has been mentioned in the last two post on theatre and fiction?
Take a look at this character and tell me something about her?
Who is she?
Where is she?
What on earth is she doing?
Pick a genre:
How would you describe her personality in your novel?
Come on; let's have some fun with this!
