Jake, I often find that authors who are focused on theme often have the problem of under-developed characters (great test, by the way). It’s as if the theme is driving the plot events and therefore the characters are just moved around like chess pieces. It’s a version of what happens in genre fiction when the plot forces the characters around versus the characters’ goals and actions driving what happens.
