Question
I have been writing a story about fictional beasts and evil people, but i am trying to make it un common. It seems a little common. What can i do to make the characters that extra bit special?

Answer
Hello Emily,

First of all you must truly understand your characters. Let them be true to themselves. Don't censor them.  Let them tell you who they are.  Remember that no one is all good or all evil. Give your heroes some weaknesses and your bad guys some good.

Happy writing,
Dorothy
