Okay, I have a major issue. I'm pretty sure I have too many characters, but they're all absolutely necessary to the plot! I have: Leo Liliana Robin Nora Melvin (the name - don't ask) Emma Daryl Jesse Samantha Bryant The M.C. Sharon Samischa Jayden Beatrix Gray All these characters are in the story together at some points, and I find myself reeling off lists of names so that the reader can keep track of the characters. For example... 'Where'd she go?' Leo asked, wheeling around to face the empty corridor behind him. He strode towards the window, with his parents, the Leeds, the Harpers, Nora, Melvin, Jayden, Sharon, Samantha, the M.C., and Samischa at his heels. Get my point? It's also pretty difficult for me to keep track of the characters. Any suggestions?
