How To Write A Book – Character Development

How To Write A Book – Character Development.  Developing realistic, interesting characters makes the story come to life.  The characters becomes real to the reader and the reader will eventually build a repore with them, and therefore enjoy the story.  Readers learn so much about each character that they can relate to them.  They think of them as their friend or their family.

Character development is hard to master because the characters can change throughout the story creating a story within itself.  Not only do we read about the character’s thoughts, emotions, loves, desires, but we become the person as we move through the story.  The story’s characters draw us in and brings the story to life.

  1. This is a great post. I read that Gail Carson Levine who wrote Ella Enchanted said that most writers were stronger at plot or stronger at character development. I think I’m pretty solid on plot but really need to work on this … so thanks!
