    I’ve got a question. Was wondering if other people can be mentioned e.g. in conversation, past events in passing, but not the central theme. How extensive is the three character limit?

    Thanks for your time

    Hello Sharon,
    Thank you for your question.
    Whilst you are only able to use the 3 characters within your submission, you can bring up other characters by reference, in flashbacks and in memories if it is part of the development of the plot or the character, but they cannot play an active role.
    i.e. “Mum used to say the same thing when she was alive, you can imagine what she would say now if she saw what was happening here!”
    Hope that helps?
