Good Monday morning! I hope your coffee is flowing freely. Now, as for my coffee enhanced thoughts, let’s talk about characters…
There are many different aspects of a character that you write. So, let’s get right into the conversation. Now, when you start a new story, you have to introduce your characters. But you can’t properly introduce them without knowing them. That’s where a good character write-up comes in.
With a character write-up, you need to get into as much detail as possible. Here are the different elements I put into mine.
- Description – Eye color, hair color, flaws such as scars. Age of character is important.
- Attitude – Is the character a gentle soul, or a sharp tongued character.
- Occupation – Cowboy, secretary, businessman, or whatever they do.
This is only a couple of items, but you get the idea. I always leave plenty of room to add new things that come about as I write. It’s important to keep things the same. Readers notice if your main character has blond hair at the start, then dark hair in the middle.
Make sure that you keep a notebook for each work so that you can keep up with everything.
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
Don’t forget, Broken is coming this month!!!
