This morning, I read a great post at Edittorrent, which made me realize I may have misled in my last post. Although I do know a lot about my characters before I start to write, I didn’t mean to imply that I know all there is to know about their personalities at that point. They reveal themselves clearer as the story progresses. As I wrote once before, these revelations can be as big as letting me know I’ve misunderstood their motivation. Usually, these are less startling, but still important to the story, and many are the little details you notice after spending time with someone. All of which make the characters come alive. No grave robbing, laboratory or electrodes required!
Can you tell how much I love writing fiction? 🙂
