Tips on Writing Better Characters Pt. 2

My favorite part of writing is characters. I have so many different characters that I never use, simply because I thought it would be fun to write them. This is a flaw of mine, but here we go:
Plan your characters. I cannot stress this enough, please, please, please, plan your characters. I’m not saying your character will ever encounted an alien invasion, but you should know what they would do should one occur. Would they run and hide? Would they fight simply because they are the main character? Who knows? Answer should be you. Know everything there is to know about your character.

At the bottom of this post, I’m sharing a very basic character outline sheet. You don’t have to log in to see it, anyone who clicks through the link will be able to copy it. It’s not mine, I just found it. It is good for characters, and I recommend using it for all your characters.

So, go flesh out your characters! Find out how that scar they have on the small on their back happened, even if you never bring anything up about it. Know these people like you gave birth to them, which, in a way, you did.

So. Here we are.

I’M ACTUALLY WRITING ANOTHER BOOK YAY to all you 10 people who saw, I was writing another book a very long time ago, but it has been shelved. I may come back to it later, I dunno.

But this time I’m actually taking my time on it. There are character flesh-outs, world building, outlining for pete’s sake. I will finish this book!

But I digress. Once I have most of the prewriting done, I will share some stuff going on with it. I really like the premise, and I think I will learn to love my characters.

But…. so. Winter break. This is my checklist:

  • Visit friends
  • Socks
  • Stay in bed all day
  •  Netflix
  • All the hot chocolate. ALL OF IT. 

But what are you guys doing over winter break? Any exciting plans over the holidays? Tell me down below in the comments so I know people read this..

Hello There~

I know I haven’t been on much, blame school, but here we go!

Congratulations to everyone done with the first quarter of school! Hope you didn’t murder anyone, or at least didn’t get caught, so for our little celebration, here’s Eridan:

Anyways, so here’s a quick poll: What are you all being for Halloween? I’m being Terezi Pyrope, cuz I made it for SLCC 2014 and am too lazy to do a whole new one.

So, what are you guys up to? I haven’t been doing much, but here we go.

Man. I used to be terrified of Gamzee, but honestly, he’s growing on me. This is amazing!

I DON’T WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE

So… I finished the final update. (Of Homestuck BTW)

stark nod

You all should be so proud of me. I was all in all satisfied, but asdfghjkl; it ended on a cliff hanger, and I just need closure. Hussie, is that too much to ask? I just need the stupid thing to end. –I’m so sorry it’s not stupid I just need to know what happens at the end   But I digress.

Amazing. That is all I have to say on the matter.

This GIF summarizes my life in a huge, candy red blood colored nutshell. But, I finished up to the great Gigapause, so I am BACK finally with stuff.

So here we go! Couple updates for you guys: No activity this week besides this and possibly a post on Saturday, because I have a camp, and it will be a lot of funtimes~ Also, I need help. I write more fanfics than actual books!!!! I haven’t finished the second chapter of my book, nor the actual title!!!!! Rawr~ also you guys should see my wall. Behind my laptop I have my wall of stuff, with drawings, origami hearts made out of sheet music, definitions of words on notecards, and other random crap like that. It’s pretty sweet. 

I don’t have a point for this post, like many of these blog posts.,..

ALSO HOMESTUCK REACTION GIFS YAYS.

Sorry, I may be sleep high at the mo. I don’t usually get too much sleep anyways, and when I do get 12+ hours like today, I GO FLIP OFF THE WALLS INSANE. Like when I have Mountain Dew.

But so if any of you want a book review, say so. 

And the target of my anger:
