Character Development: Critical To The Success Of Your Novel!
Character Development :
The importance of character development was hammered home to me at the AJC-Decatur Book Festival when New York Times Best Selling Author N. M. Kelby did an impressive two-hour presentation on Character Development.
Your Main Character:
1. Delivers your point of view to your readers
2. Is identified forever with your book.
3. Is memorable and creates lasting memories for your readers.
Think of any great book and the main character pops into your mind: Pride and Prejudice: Elizabeth Bennett, The Great Gatsby: Nick Carraway, To Kill a Mockingbird: Scout Finch, Devil in a Blue Dress: Easy Rawlins, etc. The list can go on and on with many examples from literature.
A good idea, in the devlopment of memorable characters, is filling out a Character Resume.
