Well developed characters are essential to good stories.
Your Characters can Make or Break your story!

*Star* We all love to root for our favorite Heros and Heroines as they face overwhelming odds, fall in love, get that promotion or achieve that ultimate goal.

*StarBl* Who doesn't love to hate the bad guy? We all have our favorite villains that we secretly root for. We love to watch them wreak havoc in the lives of those around them and we love watching them thwarted and conquered ...even as we root for them to get back up!

*StarB* What about those quirky, offbeat, essential secondary and background characters? Who doesn't love the town drunk, the loudmouth bully, the waspish librarian or the chatty cat lady?

*StarfishR* It is not always easy creating the perfect cast of characters for your story. For your characters to come to life they have to be multidimensional and well rounded.

*BurstBR* Heres are some keys that will hopefully help you in your quest to develop your characters:

: Half the time, I forget the names of my characters, much less know even half what is pointed out and asked on those character profiles and interview forms. Maybe I do, maybe that's why I struggle so much with my characters. So much to think about now!

: Hey {suser:rinsoxy}, maybe love motivates your character to evil. He's been spurned and publicly humiliated by the woman he loves. If he's evil enough he can force/coerce her be his bride which would publicly humiliate her? Revenge as a motive?

: Tell me more {euser:rinsoxy} ! Share a bit more about your story and plot and what your villain's motives are. WHY does he want to be the source of all evil in the universe? How will he KNOW he has achieved this goal? Does he have a name yet?

: I need a villain, one that is ambitious enough to want to become the source of all evil in the omniverse. Sick and twisted? Idk
