The Novel: A mirror of the world

Literary Realism

Plot

Continuous rather than episodic storylines.
Linear time, moving from past to present.
Logical progression of events, not dependent on sudden intervention or coincidence.

Characters

Convincing: motivations are consistent and obvious.
Coherent: thoughts and actions grow organically out of what comes before.
Multi-dimensional: rounded rather than flat or one-dimensional.
