Character Development

Today is Sunday and I'm sure other authors have rituals, boundaries, or idiosyncrasies that they have with their art.

Mine is I don't write on Sundays.

However, what I do do (do do?) other things that are writing related. Things like responding to emails, tweets, Facebook page management, and tweaking synopsis of pending drafts.

Today I'm working on the Character development of the book to the left. Believe it or not, in my prior publications I did not constructively do a character development outline. I basically did it in my head and for some reason it worked out well.

However, that tactic isn't going to work for some reason with "Hands of Fire". I don't know why, but I know that I have to individually draft each character for this book in debt. I think the reason why in Frankenstina I didn't have to do much development is because the characters didn't live long lol. Now it is intrinsic that the reader have a clear understanding of who the key characters are and why they think and behave the way they do.

This way I can do minimum backstory once the first draft is done.

I know, I know...but it makes sense to me.

Let's judge the final project and not the process.
