Tips In Effective CharactersNotes on creating effective characters
Motivation: When considering a character, always ask yourself why? Question your characters motive for everything they do, think, or say. Delve into the psychology of your character.

Every thing has a reason, and this should be relatively obvious to your readers, unless you mean to keep it a secret; but a good, solid character has depth.

to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
