Today I’m working on planning a series of adventure novels set in the 1970s and 80s.
A series depends on a couple of recurring characters that appeal to readers over a longer-term. so, even though it’s a book about structure, her character development advice helps me plan.
Jessica Brody (the author) says I need characters with: “… a strong, compelling want and an even more compelling need that readers will resonate with. … figure out what to do with this beautifully flawed character of yours.
Where are they going?
What is their big journey?
What is their most perfect plot?”
