I write many stories, and every story needs characters. And since that means I need characters, I have developed my own way to make up my own characters. First I come up with a name. How about, Blake Trent? Ok, so Blake Trent is my character's name. Next I get an age. How old is Blake? Blake is 20 years old. Ok, now I decide to make up his appearance. What does Blake look like? Well, Blake is 6'2 and strong. He has sandy blonde hair and ocean blue eyes. Blake has many scars, including one one his right cheek. Well, now I have a good idea of what my character looks like. How does he act? Well, he is a prankster and always likes to laugh. Sometimes though, Blake picks fights and that always gets him in trouble. So, I ask myself those questons and some others depending on what I am writing about. If I write a war story, then I also ask myself what gun he uses and his preferred "fighting length". So, yeah, that's my way of character development. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to say them.
