0 Kathy Temean: Donald Maass' on Writing Great Characters



Kathy Temean, busy children's author and illustrator and Regional Advisor for the New Jersey SCBWI, has posted a recap of the character development section from Writing the Breakout Novel by literary agent Donald Maass.

This is the second post I've seen today on the importance of character development, so I'll add my two cents. For me, everything in writing starts with character, including my desire to keep reading or writing. What's the point of spending time with someone boring?

Happy characterization,

Martina
