I need to work on my characters again. Maybe I'll do what I did a few years ago... let my characters write these 100-word blurbs for me. Or perhaps I could just write about my characters - scenes from what happened to them earlier in their lives... anything to make them more clear to the reader. It's funny how well you get to know your characters - inside and out - then put them in short stories and expect the reader to know them as well as you do.

Some writers can pull that off, but I can't... at least not yet.
