Summary:

  •  Show character through physical description (physical appearance, stance, movements)
  •  Show character through attitude and behaviors
  •  Dialogue is important
  •  Show character thoughts
  •  Character interactions should be thought out

Questions:

  1.  If there are a lot of characters, how difficult is it to figure out who the “main” is?
  2.   Can a story have more than one “main” character instead of just one main and a bunch of supporting?
  3.   How many characters can you have before they become repetitive?
