Analyze your characters like a police detective would! Would your stories characters really say that? Would the main character really have a friend like that?
Yes, make judgements...but base them on real things that happen during the story.
Do your characters drive the plot? Really!
Is your theme being tested by your character's actions?
Does your main character really fit into the setting of the story? Why is he or she there? Would your characters stick around in the environment you've put them into or would they travel to get away from there as quickly as possible?
You can put anyone in any setting but sometimes you need to say why or your reader may not believe you!
Are your main characters strong enough to carry a whole novel? Really?
