June 1, 2007, Newsletter Issue #113: Make your characters do the work

Tip of the Week

One way of fattening up your characters is to have them write letters and diary entries. Let your character "tell" you about himself. You wonīt necessarily paste what you write directly into the story, but it will at least give you a broader framework from which to view them. Donīt be surprised if your story takes off in a brand new (improved) direction.
