The Bit Characters

15 Feb


As my story progresses, more and more characters are nudging their way in.  Wherever I take the main characters, I find others waiting for a debut.  Often they appear with some useful information to help move the story along, or a remark which casts light on the appearance or perception of the protagonist.

I find these bit part characters to be fascinating; the drunk on a bar stool, a buxom barmaid called Edith and Gertie workhouse the nurse are among the characters who just popped in to deliver a message and have now woven their way into the plot.
