Characters and actions

We are what we do—and what characters do says a great deal about them.

Fiction focuses on critical moments in characters' lives, so we need to interpret how they respond to those crises.

Is the action thoughtful or impulsive?
Is the action appropriate?
What motivation lies behind the action?
Is the action influenced by the past?
