Work In Progress

I haven't had a chance to update my word count in NaNo because I've been busy working on my current project, so I think I won't complete NaNo this year. Oh well. It gave me the piece I'm working on now, so it's not that big of a loss.

Currently, I have been focusing on developing deeper characters and letting them take more control of the story instead of how it was before. So far its hard, but it is paying off and I feel that that first 4 chapters are pretty good proof of how far I have come.

What are some of your tips for developing your characters?
Have you ever completely scrapped an opening and rewrote it so it worked better?
Has that backfired?
