Hello, everyone. I'm a new member here, who has had ideas for novels forever, but hasn't really buckled down to write them. So, I joined here to try to motivate myself more. Anyways. I have a certain technique for creating characters' personalities, and I'd like to have your opinion on it. Whether it's effective, whether I should stop immediately, etc. Basically, I have a very basic idea on their personalities (i.e. acidic, bubbly and kind, etc.). Then, I go to a Zodiac website on the net and look for a Zodiac that describes the character that I'm thinking of. Then, I write down more specific details about the character, like their attitudes, thoughts, etc. So, what do you think? Effective, or stupid?
