A part of me is somewhat afraid to make a new thread about developing a character/plot, because god knows I've done it so many times before, you all are probably thinking, For the love of God, why are you asking? (I kid, I kid, but honestly, I have done that a lot in the past...) So basically, after watching the Despicable Me movies numerous times, and reading mystery/suspense novels, I've started brainstorming a mystery/suspense novel set in America with an Eastern-European character. Trouble is, he has bits and pieces of Gru (the main character from the Despicable Me movies) in him. Here is what I have thus far: ++ He's college-aged, a transfer student from either Estonia or Romania. ++ He doesn't like history (he finds it too political and boring), but is excited about literature and has a position at the university library. ++ He's in his late 20s, early 30s. I really don't know when he came to America, or why. I don't even know his name, and the one I have for him probably doesn't work. His name for now is Maurice Petrakov. ++ He keeps contact with his girlfriend who is in Europe. ++ He has a Youtube channel where he reviews whatever he wishes: books, movies, videogames, you name it. ++ He's a bit of a daredevil. Is this enough development for right now, or should I develop him a bit more before I start his story?
