BOOK

This is another in the Handy Little Book for Writers Series and so it is brief and to the point. These books are small on purpose so that they won’t take too much time away from your writing. This one is all about creating characters and getting to know them well - it is not about any other aspect of writing. For that reason I hope prospective writers will take the small amount of time needed to read this book and that your plot and your characters will benefit.

Characters make your story. It is therefore important for a writer to create realistic characters so that the reader finds them believable - whether they are loved or hated. Your story is carried along by your characters so it is important that you get to know them. If you don’t know them, neither will your readers.

This Little Book hopes to help you to create characters who will be believable and who will come to life in your plot.
