    Not so long ago, in August this year, I composed a stupendously long and detailed character profile sheet designed for hardcore plotters, which I consider myself to be.

    I researched, gathered, restructured and revised a good deal of online resources and put a lot of effort into this baby. I have to say I'm quite proud of it, even if some of you consider such techniques a waste of time.

    However, during the course of its making, I began to shift to a more liberal take on devising characters (mind you, this CPS is made for main characters only), but not enough to say I'm inclining towards a pantser.

    As it follows, I shortened the CPS into a personality-specific tool that fosters a more hands-on approach when outlining your characters. In this file I've included both the original and the refurbished CPS, just in case someone decides they need to input a bit more info.

    Hopefully, you'll find it useful. If not, that's fine, too.

    Take care!

    While I don't see myself using this. I can see those who like to have a structured layout before they begin, enjoying this level of character detail planing.
