      Hey Weiland,

      Just as in real life, characters on a page change and develop throughout your story. This is natural and should happen. You can write a story without any character development, but those types of stories are usually noted just for that reason – a character’s refusal or inability to learn or respond to the events around them.

      In most cases, character change is gradual and progressive. The changes and development of a character work best in your story’s confines when they seem natural, not from overtly contrived events. Eventually, thanks for sharing your experience with us.

      With best wishes,

      Amar kumar
