Characters… When is it enough?

old-woman-945448_1920I’ve been studying how to deal with those amazing people we have stuck in our minds. You know… that evil character, that amazing sex bomb, that cute old lady… They don’t exist, but they are real to us. There’s so much madness in the mind of a writer. We are like small children talking to imaginary friends and we love it, at least I do.

Sometimes we want to put them on paper in a way that feels as real as the way we think them, but it can be hard. We struggle and struggle for making the reader fall in love with our meaningful characters.

So, how much do you need to know about the characters? I would love to answer that question but I really don’t know. The only thing I can do is to give you some ideas of where to find inspiration. So here it goes, a list of resources to use when building your amazing imaginary friends.
