Profile Your Characters
If you want to write a novel, it’s a good idea to profile each of your characters before you get too far into your story. To do this, just create what is called a character profile for each of your main characters.
If you take the time to complete a detailed profile for each of your main characters, you’ll find it’s much easier to plot your story because at every turn you’ll know what each character would be most likely to do.
For each character profile, answer the following questions in 1st person – as if the character you are profiling is answering them, not you. This will help you develop this character’s voice – which is a great way to get to know the character better.
Tell us your name and give a detailed description of yourself? Include, age, race, gender, occupation, siblings, family info, where you live, etc.
Feel free to create additional questions to ask each of your characters.
