Of course, anyone can create how a person can look, what they do with their time, how their childhood was, But how do you actualy make that character come to life? I've already written my opening two chapters but i just don't feel like one of my main characters is real enough yet. He hasn't quite bloomed. He seems so faked. I don't want my characters to seem faked. My other two characters have become so real in the writing. I can see them living out their lives. One of them is a middle aged man, and another in a senior man. You'd think that as a teenage writer, it would be easy for me to create the teenage character, but i just can't make it. Do i just have to keep writing him until i finally see something real in him? OR Do you guys have any techniques that i could try? Maybe shock him with a volt of electricity?
