When using the Character Development sub-forum, remember to have specific questions in mind. Posts to the tune of "Is this character believable/interesting?" give the forum members little to go off of when responding since every character is believable/interesting when executed by a deft hand. Also it is useful to give members the background information they need to answer your question - what is the character doing ? Why? What sort of setting are they in ? and so forth. You don't need to write War and Peace but a few lines of context goes a long way to making it easier for members to give you pertinent advice When responding to posts in this area, remember that even the most experienced and knowledgeable of us started at the beginning. Please be constructive in your answers and address the question. In other words, respond the way you would like to be responded to, had the question been your own.
