"How do you build your characters?" It's a familiar question to those of us who write fiction, and, I suspect, one of the most uncomfortable. When someone asks me about "building characters," I'm tempted to remind them that characters are people, not models you put together with an erector set. You don't "build" people, you get to know them.
