A taste of my latest post: Start a Dialogue with Your Characters

I use the word “uncover” deliberately. I think it’s important for you to approach the task of creating and building your characters from the viewpoint of a complete stranger. Flesh them out from scratch. Sometimes, if you go into character creation with the idea that you know that character already, you overlook the nuances that clearly define him/her and miss the opportunity to give the character real depth.
