"Crystal, My readers and editors often say that I tend to have somewhat "over-populated" work. But since all of my fiction tends to be character generated/driven, this is not necessarily a bad thing. I agree that if there are needless…"

"I think it's not the how many, but whether they fit; if all the characters feel like they belong, and you can keep up with them, then I think there is no limit to how many you can have. :)"

"Ten? I don't know, ten is a high number to me. Then again, when you take into account all the minor ones perhaps not. I need to go look at the novel I'm reading and see how many have appeared so far just for the sake of research. It's…"

"too many charcters could easily kill the entire book. just the fact creating the characters wil eventually confuse the reader... As..the charactrs pile up, so do all the 'different' personalities. that must cooperate with each person. ..as…"

"So am I Vivi. I'm too lazy to have that many running around in my brain. I'm not fond of books with a multitude of characters. It's better to have two strong characters than six weak ones. "

Callie Leah replied to crystal rodgers's discussion 'how many character is to many?'
"The descriptions of those characters were just an example of what NOT to do in your book. And you see what I mean, I'm sure. If you tried to do that, most of the people who bought or checked out the book, wouldn't finish it. "

Viviana Arteaga replied to crystal rodgers's discussion 'how many character is to many?'
"I usually have 2 to 3 main characters and then sub characters for each one. And if you do chose to have more you do have to keep them organized. Like the writer for the Blue Blood series she has soo many characters but she seems to keep them all…"
