For example: The father of my main character is the mayor of the city. So I've been trying to show two sides to him, and have been failing pretty bad. I get it right sometimes, but after getting some excellent feedback recently on a chapter, I think I know how to proceed with him that will help him become a better character for the rest of the book.
Have any of you guys written a first draft while having it critiqued? What did you think about the change to your process?
