A list of the short stories that relate to setting & character development in my novel
At present, I am working on a novel, which I will not be posting on Writing.com. However, I decided to try to develop several short stories. There will be one around each of my main characters (at least two, and I suppose I should develop my villain, as well, eh?). My novel is also going to be about time travel, so it will take place in various historical locations. Thus, I will have a third section devoted to stories in various locals.

I have a folder put together to hold these novel developing stories. It would mean a great deal to me if you could check them out. Avlthough I am seeking info on all aspects of my stories, I am most concerned with realistic characterization in the character batches (and whether or not said characters are consistant throughout), and realistic historical settings in my setting batch. Still, one day, I may decide to try to publish these as stand-alone short stories in some form, so please critique me on all aspects; the characterization and setting are just the two most urgent.

Incidentally, I will add to this list as I write the stories, so it will be constantly updated.

Again, thanks!
