Character Development in 22,000-plus words

I continue to find that once a character is created and comes fully to life, the story takes off. I may need to provide a context for action, but the action that takes place in that context is entirely at the discretion of the main character, the driving force behind the story.

I am, of course, also required to provide other characters for the story to progress. Once those characters come to life, they also contribute to the action.

Writing is believing.
