Things to ask yourself and to be mindful of
THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF:
Are your characters real, relatable and interesting?
Is the point of view consistent?
What does your characters’ dialogue say about them? Does it reflect their personality?
Do the words leave room for an interaction with the pictures?
THINGS TO BE MINDFUL OF:
Too many characters can be confusing.
Talking animals or objects alongside talking humans is a difficult combination to pull off.
Is your character’s age, gender, looks, personality creating the maximum amount of drama and conflict?
Taking out too many words can make a story hard to follow
