In October, I submitted my category romance, which was rejected. Thankfully, the editor told me what was wrong with it--character layering. So, these past months, I've been working on improving that skill.
Then at RWA Nationals, I came across a book, The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes and Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes
The different types and the creating characters turned-on a light in my head that I might have to put on shades. Nowi know how to fix my character layering.
I recommend this book for everyone and anyone dealing with this problem. After all, characters are the best part of books.
Pro: Everything about this book.
Con: I can't think of one.
