For whatever reason I have a lot of trouble bringing in new characters after an initial, main character has been introduced. But now I've been tossing around the idea of unfolding my main character's actions from beginning to end, as if he's the only one there; then, later, I'll fill in the blanks with other characters as needed. So, basically, if you're familiar with the reference, I'll use the example of Garfield Without Garfield. What this is in reference to, is the concept somebody came up with, where they take an actual, random comic strip from the Garfield series of comics, and omit all of his appearances, thought bubbles and all. So John Arbuckle appears to be suffering from an existential (perhaps mental or identity) crisis of sorts. But I digress: "Garfield" will eventually make all his entrances, as needed. The characters will show up when it feels like someone needs to make an appearance, in the midst of the main character's dialogue, which, in its skeletal form, would appear as interior monologue. Does this sound like a good or interesting idea, or doable? I'm seriously having a lot of trouble bringing in a new character from the point where that new character would first show up, and I don't know why; I'm just trying to figure out how to resolve the issue. Even if I have to get unconventional. Thoughts? Thanks!
