Benefit of Step 7
The benefit of step 7 is to give you a place to save all the little details about each character. You can refer to your character bible throughout your story to help keep who they are afresh in your mind. And if you’re writing a series, you won’t get confused of their names, personality traits or anything that applies to your characters throughout the book/series.
