Short stories don’t have a lot of space for non-main characters, but if you’re going to include a best friend or comic relief, make sure they earn their word count!

Make sure everything they do relates directly to your protagonist’s goals.
If you share you story somewhere (and here’s why you might not want to) post a link here so we can come and read it.
