Link Of The Week- Creating Characters?!

I’m trying something new!

Instead of surprising myself with the direction of my characters’ development, I’m creating profiles for them! This is a foreign task for me, but I think we learn and grow when we challenge ourselves to do something out of our comfort zone.

In the process, I stumbled upon this site and thought I’d share it with you this week. Enjoy!

  1. I’ve been playing around with doing something like this. Of course, since I write Regencies, not all of the questions they have are applicable. I was recently asked on a blog to give my characters professions. I answered Lady and Gentleman.

  2. I LOVE it! What a great answer.
    I realize not all of the questions would apply to all genres, it was a great place to get started. I had a great writing day today and I believe it was because I was already in my characters’ heads and not discovering everything as I went along. So far, so good with this experiment!
