So does anyone else find certain types of music just suite their MC's. Or do you listen to a song and just forge someone from that song? Say if your listening to a more aggressive song you create a villian or a disjointed hero? Also do you find it helps you to create your characters. I personally would be lost if I could not give my characters a "song" that in serious cases of block you listen to a song over a few times and then your lovely just jumps out and comes to life for you? Or is this just me? Also does anyone else write up a short story of history for their characters? Like I make character sheets just so I can refer to them if say I take a break or go travelling (which I do a lot) and I need to refresh my mind I'll refer to these sheets. I also make little histories for them, to breathe life into them. If you do whats your set of questions you ask yourself about your characters prior to giving them flesh?
