Write Better: How to write the best characters for your book

A common error that a writer can make happens in the early stages of writing. More often than not, characters end up staying flat or 2 dimensional, because the character is simply filling a role in the plot.

To avoid this problem from the start, we’ve come up with two methods to help you on your way to building your characters – both methods can be used together or separately.

By completing these writing exercises before starting your story, it will show the difference between a under developed and well developed character.

We hope that these questions will get you thinking and maybe even conjure more in your mind. These exercises work best if you complete them in one sitting. Don’t think about how long it will take or how many pages you need to fill. Just focus on immersing yourself in as much detail as possible.
