Day 3: How do you get to know your characters?
I’ve personally gotten to know them over the past few years through writing them into so many drafts. But in the story, we get to know the characters through their interaction with each other, as well as their families. Zephyr has a twin sister, Dwyn, and their family bond is important. Imani has a younger sister, Ayesha, who goes missing—and she’s the only family she has left. Gabriel leaves his family after they prove themselves to be inadequate in supporting him. So through all the troubles the characters go through, the role of their family tells us about them.
