4.2.3 Writing character
Regularly reviewing past work and any ideas or observations listed in your notebook can help you generate new ideas.
Activity 4.2 Reviewing character ideas
Look back at the possible story idea or ideas that you arrived at in The notebook habit, and review all other story and character ideas you have noted or started so far.
You may or may not have got very far with these but consider whether asking the ‘What if?’ question might help you to further develop any of them.
Choose one character and develop it by:
- imagining more detail
- making sure you've done any necessary research
- asking some ‘What if?’ questions
- imagining some of the reasons surrounding the character’s dress, behaviour, speech or actions.
Write a paragraph or two about this character in your notebook, on your blog or in a Word document.
