My first whitepaper, released this past June, covered building characters. This one will dive deeper into character development and look at how to give your character flaws. Flaws help readers connect with your characters–none of us are perfect and connecting to too-good-to-be-true characters is difficult, particularly in longer-length work. As with my first whitepaper, you can expect an exercise or two to help you develop your character(s).

This is the first of these I’ve written all by my lonesome, so I am very eager to receive constructive criticism. Please don’t hesitate to contact me (link provided in the whitepaper) to let me know what worked for you and what didn’t.
Most importantly I had a lot of fun writing this. I’m thinking I might follow it up with a month’s worth of blog posts devoted to character development–looking at it in depth (the whitepaper gives an overview, because really, tons could be said). More on this to follow…for now, read and enjoy!
