What perspectives or beliefs have you challenged with this work?

    None


How do you develop your plot and characters? 

    I have a character development sheet that I fill out for every character, before they make an appearance in the book. As far as the plot goes I first focus on the climax (the big problem), once I have the climax or problem, I focus on the solution or ending. Once I have an ending, I go back and begin writing the actual story out because I now have an goal. First goal is to get my characters to the problem, that’s the easy the part, the hard part is getting them to the second goal the solution.
