Very Useful For Creating Memorable Characters

Coming up with characters is one of the most satisfying stages when writing a book. I usually think of one great protagonist and then just rush the rest of the characters because I think they don't matter. Of course they do matter and Card explains clearly how to construct all the characters in a book and how to make them believable. If you have difficulty with characters then this is an excellent guide to creating multi-dimensional, colorful characters that will stick in the reader's memories.
