Character Development - Profile Template : Library
This character profile template (with instructions and prompts throughout) is provided on the resources page of my writer's website, linked above. I have posted this character profile here to aid in character development. The purpose of using a character profile is to flesh out a character who is little more than a 'sketch', or who has not had much thought put into him or her. This profile was written primarily for literary purposes and not roleplay purposes; however, it is easily adapted for roleplay purposes, and has a roleplay counterpart (which you are able to find if you dig deeply enough into my posting history which is slightly altered.

Role: For example, general role, or story-specific role. Full Name: The character's full, complete, and legal name. Title(s): Any title, such as "Dr

Tips for Plotting: How to Create a Fascinating Plot for Your Story Fictional plots are sometimes difficult to conceive, but once you understand the formula, creating interesting and exciting plots for your stories will become second nature. The key to successful plotting is answering questions because that is what a story is based on. When you first read a book, several questions are posed through the exposition and through dialogue, the majority of which are not answered until the last chapter.

They will provide the basis for your plot, which can be as simple or as complex as you'd like. Question #1: Who is your main character? This is the person from whose point of view your story is told. Question #2: Who are the protagonists? Question #3: Who is the antagonist? Question #4: What are the main character's goals?

Character Trait Chart Character Trait Chart and Personality Components It can sometimes be helpful to make a Trait Chart for each character. To use this chart, print it out and make a copy for each of your characters. Full name - a character's name is very important. Besides the character's official name, we also need to know what he is called (and, perhaps, what he prefers to be called). Date of Birth/Age - we should carefully consider assigning our character a birthday. Address - this can be as detailed or as vague as you wish, but it should answer a few questions: does the character live in a large city, the suburbs, a small town or deep in the country? Height - this doesn't need to be specific. Weight/Body Build - again, we don't really need to know a character's exact weight, only if he or she is stocky, slender or "had a figure that . . ." Hair - keep in mind the character's ethnic background in assigning hair and eye color. Health - does your character have any health problems or weaknesses? Questions?
