How to write a novel | character development

If you’re new to my Wednesday blog about writing, the story so far is about Nick. Nick goes on a road trip after the death of his parents and meets Lily, an American from New England who he forms a love-hate relationship with. Most of the story will take place in the English Countryside. I have a picture of a village green in my mind and a village cricket match. They play cricket on the field in the picture and wear whites, it is far removed from a village green, but  the scene looks a little like that on a summer’s day. You need imagination to set the scene and the characters; that is what writing is all about. The child who once looked out of the window in the school classroom and daydreamed, often grows up to be the aspiring writer.
