Trick 1: Make them more physical
Often as writers we shy away from the physical actions of our characters and stick to what they are thinking or feeling. But readers want more! They want to live in your skin, walk in your shoes, eat with your family and live your life for a few hundred pages. If it's a novel you are going to make this all up. Make sure you get more physical and you embody your character
