One of my favorite things about writing is creating characters…characters so tangible that I dream about them at night…characters so believable and personal to me, that I’ll de-friend you if you tell me they’re not real. Okay, maybe I sound a little kooky, but that’s okay. I just figure that if my characters are convincing to me, they’ll be convincing to my readers.
A great tip when creating characters that readers will remember, is to pull up a chair, sit down, and interview them. (Yup, maybe I’m kooky. Just a little.)
