Guesting elsewhere today ~ balancing peripheral characters with main characters

A few weeks back, I was asked if I would contribute my thoughts to Thea’s wonderful blog. The subject she wanted to me to tackle was how to stop peripheral characters in a story usurping the main ones. “Oh,” I said. “You mean how to stop Side Show Bob murdering Bart Simpson?” and the post was born.

Enjoy (oh and be sure to check out Thea’s books while you’re there too!)
