Character Development

Writer to Writer

The creation of characters was thoroughly discussed in the Ultimate Guide To Creating A Character. This is a follow up, focused more on how your characters should grow with your story and how they should be connected with your plot.

There’s a single, most important process when creating your character, and it is change. Change can be considered as the only constant in life, however paradoxical that might be. Here is what I mean: if your cells die and get replaced daily, and in a rough estimate your body is made of a completely new set of cells every seven years – is that still your body?

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
