There are so many aspects to making your characters real. There is no need to rush through it. Take a trip to the Wizard, or if you already have one, pull out your crystal ball. It may take time before you see anything, it may be a little cloudy, at first. You need to be attuned to your crystal ball. Creating characters takes time. It is hard work! Remember, information will be subtle, but if you are patient you will be rewarded. Today, the crystal ball says that while this story has been dragged out enough, more is still to come! (I have "stowed away on a ship", now a crystal ball.)
Hmmm, maybe I can use the crystal ball to see when I’ll be published!
I know it’ll all work out in the end, but I’m anxious to see how it all turns out!
What ideas do you come up with for creating your characters?
