So, in my short stories I like to have a lot of characters. I think I've developed a way of storytelling that can handle a big cast, so to speak. But now I'm working on a novel, and I don't have a lot of characters. I don't really see a need for them in this story. But is it harder to pull off a novel with only a few characters? I have basically two main characters and a handful of other characters with smaller roles. Is this something I should worry about? How many characters do you have in your novels?
