Tidbits​ and Nuggets – Introducing Characters

Tidbits & Nuggets-2

 

“Introduce a new character with enough physical description for your readers to picture him or her… all you need are a few concrete, idiomatic details to jump-start your readers’ imaginations…when you sum up your characters, you risk defining them to the point that they’re boxed in by the characterization with no room to grow.”

Tidbits and Nuggets – Making Characters Real

Tidbits & Nuggets-2

“Have your characters misunderstand one another once in a while. Have them answer the unspoken question rather than the one asked out loud. Have them talk at cross purposes. Have them hedge. Disagree. Lie. It will go a long way toward making them sound human.”
