If you are a fellow NaNo, you may have bumped into a few new characters this week. Or maybe you realized that you didn’t know your protagonist as well as you thought you did.

Before I changed my concentration to English, I was a psychology major. I spent a lot of time researching the great psychologists and trying to understand their tests and theories. To be honest, I thought most of what I was learning was pointless. I could apply very little to what I wanted to do with my life. However, I did stumble across one tool that made six semesters of grueling psych classes completely worth it.
