Stepping into Character's Shoes

First confession, though I'm a young writer, there are still a number of things that I don't know. For example, character development. Okay, as writers we're suppose to know, feel, and think while we're in our character's position. We 'see' what they see and thus bring that perspective to live. Sometimes the story relates to us. Other times, the story has no sufficient meaning. However, we wouldn't be who we are if that were the case. Our characters often reflect who we are. Our personality blended with of course the art of creative writing, focuses on how we portray a specific character. From there the image is brought to life where the reader can grow with them. Some times it is difficult to let this image of what we think our persona is actually develops.

By what I mean for development is that this is one step which the character starts to take shape and form. They become 3 dimensional. Then the real fun begins.
