Introducing new characters to the story

Introducing new characters to the story

A Lesson by Mercy Fae

How to pull your reader into the pages, by making your character feel important to the plot.


Say your character's name is Bob.

Very simple introduction: This is Bob.
Simple introduction: This is Bob. He enjoys the outdoors, and often goes camping.
Complex introduction: Bob is an outdoorsman, camping on weekends in the (insert name here) forest, just across from the (name) river. (Family life) (occupation) (other) (start of conflict)

Seem simple? It really depends on whether your character is the protagonist (main character who drives the story) or just a walk-on character (a character that only appears once, but does something to move the plot along).
