The reason I started this new method is because of everything I've been reading lately about stories having a "voice." It's something I think I'm getting better at, but I thought that with a character analysis I might be able to take it up a notch. If I know all the ins and outs of my characters, know how they'll react to the situations I throw at them, I might be able to write them more authentically. Really give them a uniqueness that might be lacking in my previous stories. But we'll see.
What about you? Do you have a method to fleshing out your characters, or do you just write them off the cuff?
