Interview Your Characters

Years ago I learned somewhere that one of the best ways to get to know your characters is to interview them. In today's tip from the web, I will refer you to author Susie Henderson's "How to Write a Novel" web site, where she covers precisely how she interviews her characters.

While I may not agree with Susie on all her approaches, I find she has done an admirable job of showing how to conduct an interview with a character who (until you publish that great book!) exists only in your imagination.

Whether you're still working on basic fiction writing skills or you're a multi-published novelist who can use a reminder, you might appreciate Susie's approach. Check her out!

Do you have any great ideas on how to work with the voices in your head? Please share them!
