Another writing meme from me, because there just aren't enough out there. This one is done in a drill sargeant style...stripping your character down, giving them a buzz cut, and making you look at their personality and their lives rather than their outward stuff.
Just because I mention Mary-Sues, don't think it has to be just for that. It'll work with any character.
Remember it's all in fun, and hopefully will make you think differently about your character.
Please let me know if you do it, or even if you think you might do it.
