Getting to know you

Get to know your characters before you write. Sit down and chat with them. Let them tell you about their loves, what their hates, about what they find fascinating or boring. Let them ramble on about their background, their upbringing, their religious and political beliefs and attitudes. Find out their reasons for living and their darkest fears about life.

Now start your story.
