Writing Secondary Characters
from THE Writer
At a science fiction convention some years ago, a famous writer (to remain nameless) was giving a talk about creating a character. "You must make the character come to life from the very first word," he opined. From the audience, a second famous writer called out: "Marley was dead: to begin with" – the opening line of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Much hilarity ensued.
