Sally Wiener Grotta shared how she creates such vivid, fully-fleshed fictional characters in an essay that was posted on Writer Unboxed.

“'I’m having difficulty with the dialog,' Liz said to me. What a major problem, because she was talking about a play she was writing. Unlike a novel, a script is all dialogue—a story devoid of narrative. 'My characters are too thin. Please take a look, and tell me where I went wrong.'

"Liz is a good friend whom I could trust to welcome an honest critique, so I read her play. It’s nicely framed, but insubstantial, for the precise reason that she is forcing a plot onto stick figure characters which she has created for the sake of her story arc." Click through to read Sally's suggestions to Liz about how to Create Living Breathing Dialog and fictional characters that will capture readers' imagination.

(In the novella "Honor," Jeff Smith carries a guilty secret from the Vietnam War era that he must overcome to help his daughter realize her dream. It explores the question: What is it to be honorable? In the eyes of others? In your own heart? Is it what you've done or who you are?)
