In this episode, Terrance and I discuss the question, “Who’s your protagonist?”
How do you develop the most important character in your story? Do you just start writing and figure it out as you go along, or does character development take some planning?
We discuss character arcs (positive, negative and flat), techniques for getting to know your character, how to develop strong characters, and much more.
One of the tips offered is conducting character interviews. A resource mentioned is K.M. Weiland’s article entitled “100+ Questions to Help You Interview Your Character.”
