Character Development

Do you ever find yourself completely swept away by a character in a novel you’re reading or even in a movie or television show you’re watching? Well that’s because a writer (or a team of writers) took the time to make that character true to life.  Some of the most interesting characters in literature are complex characters.  They may not have the most endearing attributes, they might be a bit hypocritical, but overall they are human. I think we can all identify with our own complexities. As people we all have layers. A well written character will make you love or hate them, or maybe you can feel a bit of both. The important thing to remember is to see your characters as human and don’t worry if your readers hate them. At least your readers feel something! Happy Writing!
