Ivana Milakovic replied to the discussion 'Character or Plot' in the group CHARACTERS
"Both are important. I care about characters a tiny bit more than I care about the plot -- after all, if I don't care about the characters, I'm not likely to care what happens to them either -- but I find both to be important."

"I have to admit there are a couple of writers who I consider candy, and they are character driven with soso stories, or occasionally good plots, but I LOVE the characters.  The Cat Who books are in that category.  She is fun, best-selling,…"

Kathleen Kaska replied to the discussion 'The Recycled Character' in the group CHARACTERS
"Good question, Michelle. I write a series and often find my minor characters showing up again when I hadn't planned on using them. I like it when that happens and I've learned to pay attention when they coming knocking. "

Welcome to the novelist group, Kathleen. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Meg
