 What your characters need to strike a chord with readers.

How do you write an unforgettable character? It's a question so complex you might as well ask how to write a good book. That said, there are a number of common factors among characters striking an unforgettable chord with readers. Letís examine those factors to brainstorm, troubleshoot, and flesh out our main characters, ultimately making them both compelling and memorable in the readerís mind. Bring your protagonist or antagonist to play with on paper!
