I've come across a few literary-journal editors who say they want character-driven fiction. While I have a general idea of what they are saying (strong characters, compelling voice), I'm not 100 percent sure what this means. The stories they choose to publish always seem to have a strong plot to me when I read these journals. So, what makes a story character driven over something else like plot heavy? Help me process the idea of a character-driven story. I know where I want to publish my short fiction. I know some of these editors really dig character-driven stories. This is what I want to be able to deliver.
