|mark211||What makes a fully rounded character?||2016-06-05 01:44:16|
|mark211||In last week's discussion, Ironspider, Rik Tornello and myself considered the question of names - of places and characters, in SFF stories. So this week, I thought it would be interesting to go beyond the name and look into character. ||2016-06-05 01:45:58|
|mark211||What features do you make for a fully-rounded and believable character? Conversely, what makes some characters appear superficial and 2-dimensional in other stories? Can you think of any well-known examples of strongly drawn, characters? Be sure to let us know below. ||2016-06-05 01:47:47|

|micheledutcher||Sometimes there are limits on how well a character is developed because of the genre itself. For instance - it is very difficult to come to care for a character in 1000 words or less. It is possible, but I've only come to care about characters in flash fiction a handful of times if that.
Lack of depth of course would be John Carter, hero of Mars. I'll need to think about who epitomizes depth of character. ||2016-06-06 10:14:21|

Give generously to the United Wa - uh, we mean Quantum Muse. It keeps Mike off the streets from scaring small children and the Web Goddess from spray painting Town Hall - again.
