This article will be very short. Someone once said about my stories that there seemed to be lots of life going on around my main characters. "La Dolce Vita" on my AD is a perfect example of this. Remember, your main characters need a backdrop to act out the story against. The backdrop gives the story "visual" depth and visual depth is a good thing. Visual depth gives verisimilitude to a story. The dictionary defines verisimilitude as: appearance of being true or real.

Even though I'm writing fiction I want my stories to have the apperance of being true or real.

great advice as usual. thanks for sharing and luck.

I agree, a main character without a past, or feelings, or purpose is just someone wandering through the pages.
Give him or her pain, hate, love or a devious plan and the interest about what is going on will be alerted.
Sometime I read about heroes that are too much to believe.
Yes, verisimilitude, follow the advice.
