I love getting to know my characters, figuring out how they think, why they would do certain things, or not, and getting to know who they are and how they became that person. But it’s a dead space in the word count listing!!
For a person who likes to check items off of the daily To Do list, it is a process that is frustratingly unchartable. Yet, it remains a rewarding process, seeing what incidents in the life of your person led to decisions, thought patterns, and habits. A painstaking process, to be sure, as I get to know how my protagonist, Isaias, will react to plot events, and thus create the story.
