What makes a character

A recent guest posting for Beth Barany challenged me to produce something of the “how” and having done so, it forced me to go back and review my current writing.


I think creating a full background history and delving into why a character is who they are helps to create a more interesting person. So, for my current heroine I’ve now got a full history, a map of the flaws and I know exactly where they’re going to intrude on the storyline.
