Characterization

How developed are the characters? Writers must decide how much complexity to give them—which is often referred to as "shape."

Round characters—fully developed; emotionally and psychologically complex.
Flat characters—one dimensional; little or no emotional or psychological depth.
Stock characters—stereotypes, even caricatures (wise old man, clever servant, rich wastrel, naive ingenue); no development.
