I have been bouncing around this site discussing character developement here and there.  I thought it would be nice to have a group devoted to the subject.  I just started one called Characters.  Please drop by, start a discussion, let's get the ball rolling.

Okay, here's one for you. Describe something about this woman. What is she thinking? What kind of past does she have? What do you think her story is? etc., etc.
