The Importance of Backstories in CharacterizationAs I’ve gotten back into the swing of writing and trying to come up with new story ideas, I have come to understand the importance of giving my characters detailed backstories. In the past, I have often had a habit of making my characters essential “blank slates” in order to make them seem more relatable.
