I started in my novel writing class yesterday. Since the goal is to write a "shitty first draft" (that is what the syllabus says), and plus since is my first time ever attempting something like this I am going to take my ghost story idea and use that as the bare bones structure of my novel. I already have the story arc laid out (hero's journey) and now I need a little help with some supporting character ideas. My protagonist is a 24 yr old girl who's been hired for the summer by a cemetery association to catalog, organize, and put all of their old files on the computer. The cemetery is over 100 years old and is huge ( it is almost 1.5 miles from one end to the other end). The building where all of the files are kept are in the house where the caretaker once lived. My antagonist is going to be a giant snarling beast that blocks her path whenever she tries to go to a certain area of the cemetery. My underlying concept is that what she sees in the light of day is how people want themselves to be seen, or how they feel about themselves. The snarling beast at the end will be revealed to be a soldier who feels that because of things he did during the war that he sees himself as an evil snarling beast and doesn't deserve to be seen any other way. I need some suggestions for some supporting characters that she will meet. At the end of the story she will discover that everyone she's been in contact with at the cemetery are all ghosts (most will be harmless). I need some ideas of characters she can meet in the cemetery and maybe some very subtle clues that they are residents and not guests before she actually discovers this for herself. I don't want it blatantly obvious.
