This is an excellent guide for creating interesting characters that will help drive your plot, inform your key message, and keep readers hooked.


I love this article not only because it's good -- but because a post on characters that biz people can relate to is rare indeed.


So read these 8 tips, keep them handy, and upgrade your characters!
