Following up on last week’s video clip on plotting, here’s a new clip on characterization. Developing characters is one of my favorite parts of the writing process.

What makes a character jump off the page for you as a reader? Any questions about particular characters in my books and what went into developing them? I love talking about characters, my own and other writers’. Writers, any thoughts to share on how you develop your own characters?

This week’s Fraser Correspondence addition is a letter from the newly betrothed Gisèle (a character I had trouble getting “right”) to Charles.
