The main focus of the snowflake method is to develop your plot, but character development is equally as important. For some writers, it is even more important. I found that while the first few steps of the snowflake method help me to start draft ideas, it isn’t until I get to the character development stages that my novel starts to take most of its shape. This is because I am very character driven.
Character development starts in step three of the snowflake method but in step five really starts to take its form. I use a Character Development Sheet to help me start to fledge out my characters. Feel free to check it out and use it for your own writing.
