Random Elements of Storytelling.

lostnbronx leads us on an investigation of the fundamentals of story telling.

What are some typical ways to create characters in your stories? Should you create the plot first, or the characters first? Should we think of characters in terms of heroes and villains, or protagonists and antagonists? What is the value of character depth, and is it the same as the character arc? Lostnbronx offers up even more off-the-cuff thoughts about this complicated subject.
