The wonderful thing about writing and blogging is all of you. I’m busy with NaNoWriMo prep (and not organizing my room like I should be), and I’m currently working on figuring out my main character. I know her name, a bit about her issues, and even what she looks like; but my next task is discovering her personality and what she is really like. It makes me wonder…
- How does the protagonist’s personality affect the story?
- Do I determine her personality and strictly write according to it, or will her personality develop as I write?
- How the heck do I even determine a character’s personality?
- What is personality?
Here’s where you all come in again. I love that I can be working on something, then I bump into an issue; but all I have to do is switch over to WordPress and ask for your all’s opinion. I love writers’ discussions, and I love hearing about how you write.
How do you write your characters and decide on their personality? Is it something you plan ahead of time? Or does it just appear somehow?
