How do you create complete characters and keep them consistent throughout the novel when you write?
I find creating complete and believable characters to be the greatest challenge of writing a novel. I always want actions to spring from the characters themselves and I have to fight not imposing my own expectations on them. Because I often write from multiple perspectives, I make notes to myself as I go along to remind myself what each character knows at each point in time. Is there an easier way to do this??? PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
