This week I am asked what do I think of or ask of my secondary characters. Truth be told, I’m so focused on my Hero and Heroine’s story I never really think of my secondary characters; they just show up when called for in my seat of the pants writing technique. 🙂
They are usually friends of my main characters who are there to show support or add filling to what I’ve written. When they aren’t there to show support, then they enter the story to work on the antagonist’s behalf (whether they know that or not). Simply put; they are my pawns in the game of chess my H&H and the villain play.
