Write a list of New Year’s resolutions for your novel’s hero or heroine.

Hmm. Okay. ONLY YOURS is finished, and the story begins in late October. So I’m going to write this from the time frame of January of the year the novel began.

– Get into an Ivy League college
– Write three songs
– More spiritual reflection

– Earn a football scholarship
– Get a motorcycle
– Ask Lena out (finally!)

ACK! This is hard. I feel like these lists make them seem so one-dimensional and they are so far from that.

You’d think I’d know better, I mean, I’ve been working with these characters for years now. Hmmm.
