Writing Tips: Characterisation
Characterisation: Avoiding the Dreaded Mary Sue
The characters you write are arguably the biggest part of your story. They’re the vessel through which the reader is able to identify with the themes and ideas that you’re trying to share. But creating brand new lives from thin air can sometimes be rather difficult. You have to find their voice, their needs, their personality; it’s a rather delicate balance, really.
Rather tempting, and often encouraged by teachers, is to do a “Character Profile” to help come up with some of the details. These are often pre-made sets of questions ranging from the mundane (eye colour, height, weight) to the fanciful (if your character caught someone looking at his girlfriend, what would he do?).
I don’t like these. And here’s why.
The questions are all a little too cookie-cutter. They promote stereotype characters, and you don’t want that. The actual physical details about the character don’t need to be mentione

  • Reading: Phantom of the Opera: Lowell Bair translation
Well that pride in uploading was short lived. Now look how far behind I've fallen! Sheesh. :no:

I got a job!! :w00t: That's good because I need to start saving for my next European adventure and a car! However, the job eats my time, you know. I went through some crazy training hours and transfer troubles, but I'm finally going back to the location I love most and should be working with an ideal part time schedule. :)

For anyone who's wondering, I work at Panera Bread. It's a darling little cafe/bakery and I couldn't be happier with the atmosphere, the food, or my coworkers. :love:

My Christmas was laid back and restful; I even got some writing done! That makes me tremendously happy. :floating: I hope it went as well for all of you!

Welllp... I'll do my best to get some more Europe '10 pictures up here. Sorry about the slacking! I'm heartily ashamed.

Happy New Year! :blowkiss:
