The focus for August at The Word Place has been “character development/creation. The views (according to the counter) have been pretty spectacular for a relatively unknown blog. I hope I’ve offered you some useful information. Just in case you missed any of the blogs with great links, I’m reposting those links here.
Happy researching and writing, and may all of your characters be really real!
