Remember how last post I was excited because I can feel the start of a new story going on? Well, one of the things that's been blocking me from starting is that one of the main characters remained two-dimensional (mostly, he was too dang perfect...yeah, he might be a love interest for my protagonist). I couldn't get a grasp on him and it was frustrating me so much.
Last night I came across this set of interview questions for characters. I filled it out according to this character I had been struggling with and had one of those HALLELUJAH moments. I could hear his voice and his struggles and motivation. It was simply amazing.
Now I plan on doing the same thing for a few other characters. Even the ones I have a good grip on, I think I'll just understand them even better.
