~Emily~ asked Caragh M. O'Brien:

What do you do to get inside the heads of your characters?

Caragh M. O'Brien Hi, Emily. I live the scene with them the first time through, feeling the emotions and the setting with them, and then, with later revisions, I know the characters better so I can make them feel and seem even more true. It means I rejoice and suffer with them. You sound like a writer, too, so I'm guessing you know what I mean.
