character development

As a writer, I’m always trying to come with new ways of creating characters. Sometimes I’ll get inspired by a character in a book or movie, but that character was already made up by another writer. So I came up with a character sketch. What a character sketch is basic information on person to inspire or create a character. Sometimes I take people I know, have them fill out a simple questionnaire to learn more about their personality. It helps to understand people in general and helps to build characters.

I know that sounded so much like a text book, but that’s what I get for being in college so long. I also wanted to let everyone know, I am NOT trying to collect personal, information like last names, phone numbers, addresses, or anything that can be traceable. Nor am I trying to get in anyone’s personal business. Script and story writing have been huge hobbies of mine since I could read and write. I just want to expand my idea of characters so that I could possibly have a writing career as well as education career someday. This is totally volunteer. If you are offended by any question, don’t answer it or just let me know. I have to have this warning because I have made people ask questions in the past.

This part is something I just thought of and that I would try it out.

If you could make up a character for whatever story would you make. What kind of character would it be? Note: If you’re character inspires me, I will give you credit. I always give credit to anything that inspires me.
