Are Your Characters This Interesting?
Think of your main characters as dinner guests. Would your friends want to spend two hours with the characters you’ve created? Your characters can be lovable, or they can be evil, but they’d better be compelling.
Plot is what keeps you going when you watch a movie or read the script, but character is what stays with you. One without the other will keep your story from being the best that it could possibly be, so you'd better not neglect character.
