  7. Reblogged this on Archer's Aim and commented:

  8. Thanks for the tips. Surfing the web forums for character information is a great idea. A while ago I did that for a book that has yet to be written about depression. Too depressing to write it. 😉

  9. Excellent advice, Sara! I didn’t start to keep this information until recently but I’ve found as I age I have CRS disease (Can’t remember …). Keeping these records come in handy especially with a series which is what I’m working on now. I started the first two books many years ago, so to start with I had to go back, reread and make notes on the different characters already introduced. I’ve also found images to go with the characters. I have a second series also started, and for the next book, I’ve done the same thing. One of the characters has a large family, so I’ve tried to add a bit of information about each one; although, they may have a part in the book or they may not. It hasn’t been decided yet.

    Thanks for hosting, Sarah!

  10. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Character development is vital to a strong story. Weak characters make for weak reading. Good post Sara.

    Sarah, thanks for your fantastic support and for hosting!
