After working around my character development for my MC, I've discovered that in her age bracket (25-29) she simply can not be all of the things I wanted her to be I/E Rich girl, teenage runaway, Army medic, then ER physician with a failed marraige, miscarried baby, and so on... However, I noticed her love interest/my secondary protag was highly undeveloped in terms of background story. So, I started rearranging roles between the two and building something that would work and seem a little more realistic at the same time. Now, AJ is the soldier suffering from PTSD and Amy (age 23) is the med student who is at risk of throwing everything away for a life of drug abuse. Or vice versa. I probably wont fully decide until I start writing i earnest. The rest will be decided/changed as the narrative comes to life. So, how many of you have rearranged roles from one character to another in the same book because one was loaded down with far too many attributes?
