Background and Consistency

girl colourNext, the characters. I draw on many different sources: people I have seen or met in passing, or know or have known, or have watched on TV. Or I think of characteristics which would make my protagonist interesting. My inspiration comes from many areas.

I write a full biography of each of the main characters, including:boy

  • physical description
  • characteristics
  • background, including family (where necessary)
  • job(s)/career(s)
  • date of birth
  • anything else which is pivotal to the story
  • as I am a visual person, I browse the internet to find a photo which most represents each character so I can picture them. This also joins their biography.
