I've been wanting to create a character first before the plot or even "the main idea" and get them in trouble and see what happens. I read accounts of how some people fill out this huge 100 questions, etc and get all super detailed about their characters and while something about this does appeal to me a little, I find myself more loose brush type, big strokes then fill in as needed type of person. I have a good book on character building but it's so huge and daunting I never read it. I feel I would never actually create a character. Can anyone steer me down the right path to get me started? Thanks.
