Who's Your Character

Posted on May 4, 2017 at 9:10 AM

In any type of story you’re writing breathing life into your character is just as important as the plot of the story. Someone or something has to move the story forward. Below are just a few tips that have helped me along the way when I put pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard. As crazy as that may sound I’m sure you get where I’m coming from.

*Let The Characters Speak To You--Sometimes voices in our heads may seem weird, but when you’re coming up with characters for your story you need to let them tell you who they are, what they look like, where they live, where they are coming from and what they are trying to achieve.

*Detail Matters--Now I’m not saying you have to note every single mole or pimple on your character’s body, but it does help when you visualize what your characters look like and whether or not you want them to remain that way throughout. Giving physical, mental, and emotional attributes does give definition to your characters and their development.

*Good vs. Bad--A good question to ask yourself is which character (s) do you want to be the protagonist and antagonist (the good one or the bad one). Just because one may start off one way doesn’t mean that this character has to stay that way. Wouldn’t that make for a juicy twist?

*Use Resources--If you’re still struggling with the aspects of your characters either read a book or watch television. Notice how the writers developed their characters. You are sure to get an inspirational spark that could help you with what you’re looking for in terms of the characters in your story. Take a little bit from here and there and you’ll begin to build your thoughts more and more. Before you know it you’ll be back to writing again.

*Make Things Memorable--Keep your audience intrigued. Give them something that will make them want more. Make something about your character(s) so worthy that it will have people talking about them throughout their lifetime. Yes, i know that may sound a little far fetch. However, remember to give each of your characters their own identity. Don’t make them all the same. That will do nothing for your story, but make it one note and uninteresting. They don’t all have to be realistic, but do make them memorable.

I’m not telling you that these tips are concrete or will definitely get you to the red carpet because you got nominated for an award (although it could happen--anything is possible). I just wanted to share with you some of the things that have helped me and hopefully will help other writers. Good luck on what you’re trying to achieve!!!

This is one of the a-one websites in the world. That's a ton of passable load that you can attend on a daily basis, which makes you draw a blank close by the whole else.

This is one of those websites that not quite necessary an introduction, seeing how lionized they are and how much gratefulness they got from people until now.
draw on themselves the best tube site, and while this assured is a big claim.

A conspiracy that is both iconic and simple. You shift a open curriculum vitae on height of which you'll hit upon a batch of thumbnails scattered around. That's easy on the eyes uncontrived, but it gets the province done, and no website needs more than that, now does it.

A forthright, in time to come practical video player. The player is one of the most accessible video players in the tube world. It's has a out rarely design, and it's great, really.

Once in a blue moon insufficient words about the all-embracing experience. Balanced granted this website has no restricted content, it calm manages to give you a spacious experience. For the sake starters, all of the videos in here is free, the player is gargantuan, and the climate is great. I include no regrets when I scourge this site.
