Just wanted to share a fun idea I had. I'm sure it has been done before. When I read a magazine and see people that are interesting I cut them out and paste them in a book. Then I write little profiles beside their pictures. I save them in this little book. I mix and match them and imagine how they would get along, what kind of relationship they may have, and what they might say to each other. Do you have any nice ways to develop characters?? Edit (a lot tonight) I should have been more clear. I use pictures of people in magazines or paintings, and create make believe profiles.
