    Not a bad guide, to be honest, I'll probably use this in my ongoing project. I've got real-world characters as well, so its easier.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Glen, I am sure it will really come in useful for people. Can I ask a question though, do you actually fill in one of these sheets for all of your main charectors and store it somewhere??

    This is quite a good guide as a starting point. I'll probably be using something very similar to create my characters!:)

    Yes!! You can take and copy one sheet for each major character. Keep the blank copy as a template. Glen

    I use something similar. I outline my character's features, and it's much more detailed than that.

    Thats quite helpful, I'm using it now on some of my characters. Normally I just brainstorm all of what they are and bunch it into one big block of text, or worse, spread it all over my notes section.

    I do something similar too, the only difference, I write down each aspect of my character in a story format, it help me relate better when I'm actually introducing the character to the story!
