Hipshot!Hey there, sparrows! ♥
Long time no see! Okay, okay, not terribly long. :> We're well into Julyhow is everyone's summer coming along? What sort of things have you been up to so far? I hope you're all having a great time and enjoying the sun. Thus far, my summer has been fantasticlots of swimming, fishing, hiking, motorcycle riding, starry nights and watermelon, haha.
I'm making this journal for those of you who have followed my horror story 'Hipshot' (and anyone who'd like to start following it). After putting the project on hold for several months, I have revised the first four parts (and oh man, what an improvement, seriously), and updated them today, in preparation for the release of the fourth part of the story tomorrow evening. If you've read Hipshot before and plan on reading the 4th section, I think you'll enjoy it much better if you re-read the story beforehand, now that it's been revised, and refresh it in your memory. Check back tomorrow
Getting to Know Your CharacterGetting to know your character(The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)Getting to Know Your Character7 years ago in Writing More Like This
As mentioned in the filled-out character sheet, the first best way to get to know your character is to write down everything you can about them in a character sheet.
This includes, but is not limited to, their personal history (whether it will appear in the story or not), the names of their family members, their physical looks, their personality, and so on and so forth.
The second best way is to write about them. Put them into all sorts of little-bit situations so you know how theyd react to something. For instance, my Character Milan is an in-training scientist. We know, from the character sheet, that she carries weapons and has very little association with her mothers side of the family and the only people she knows about on her mothers side of the family are her grandmother Rant and her grandfather, Maren. Shes adventurous and loves anything that has to deal with the distant past.
