    Many people should find it useful, but I cannot fill those lines >_<. I usually get to know my characters as I write, as I find it more easy. Nevertheless, thanks for the worksheet!

    Hey..cool idea!

    I must say that for me...my characters come to life as I write them. I start with a basic description and just write from that, making changes as needed.

    I usually do that and I also base them off certain people I know.

    Oh, cool. This should be most useful. I usually know my characters fairly well by the time I start writing scenes with them, but rarely have I worked out the little nuances and quirks of their personalities until I've worked with them for a while. This should make it a little easier. Thanks for posting. :D

    It's not working! D:

    Maybe because I'm on my crappy 90s computer. I'll try the other one...

    EDIT: Ooh, it's working now! Yay! :D

    This was very helpful. Thank you. :) I only use these for help and never follow them to the word, but when the character has been created already, these are very helpful for getting to know them even better. :) For me it's this way. :)

    Awesome!

    This is such a great tool - thank you so much. I tend to let the characters develop as I write - but this sometimes causes me to get a few details wrong and the story line alters - so I will give this a shot with a novel I am just developing! Flic
