Character Sketches: Make Them Well-Rounded

Today it will have to be a quick blog as I have to head to work in a few minutes.

Character Sketches.

This is another way to get to know your characters a bit better. Will you use all this information in your MS? Probably not. But it will help you have a well-developed character. This is for all your characters, major and minor, protagonists and antagonists.

This is the sheet I use. It is from First Draft in 30 Days by Karen S. Weisner.
