My tale revolves around a wet nurse and her ward. Why can't I seem to focus on developing either character? I keep trying to, but it all seems forced. Not realistic at all. However, a minor character, who thus far is only for comedic relief and won't even be discussed at all in a few chapters I can't leave alone. I think it is because his mannerisms I am molding around my own son's. But I keep writing scenes where he is involved and starting to think maybe I should change the focus of my story, but then the entire story line gets altered and augh. What do you do in these situations? It is easy to picture his face (though vastly different from my sons), and his verbalisms. It's easy to see how he interacts with different characters. However, I can't even make up my mind as to what my main antagonist is going to look like, let alone the protagonist.
