First, let’s make sure we understand what we’re talking about.
This humorous video by RedLetterMedia offers some of the basics of character development. It talks of it from a film-making prospective, but this applies in writing fiction as well.

Holly Grigg-Spall in many ways is completely different from me. She’s not religious, she’s a feminist, pro choice, and someone who spent a good part of her life on hormonal contraceptives. She has no anti-contraceptive agenda, no religious bias to promote a religious ideal. And this, in my opinion, makes her book, Sweetening the Pill – How we got hooked on hormonal birth control, one I would highly recommend for any woman to read, Catholic or not.
