Every writer knows that creating interesting characters is one of the toughest parts of the job.
I don’t feel like an expert on characters by any means, but RT Book Reviews said this about my latest book: “MacNaughton has a real gift for developing quirky and crazy characters.”
Nice to hear, but I’ll tell you: it’s not really a gift. Nobody is born knowing how to write great characters. It’s a skill, and like any skill, it can be learned.
Want to know how I do it? I’ve laid out how to create your own characters, step-by-step.
