DEVELOP A CHARACTER VOICE -- Author's Sharon Skinner and T.M. Williams are known for 'listening' to their characters. How has this helped develop memorable characters that pop off the page? It's important that characters stand out but don't become cliched. (Unless that's what you're going for) Join the discussion on what makes a memorable character unique, real, and why it's important that your MC isn't the only one the reader remembers. You'll also get to hear which characters gave these authors the most trouble and why it worked out for the best.
