Character Development Sheet 01This is a character development sheet. It's used to help think outside the box for character creation. When making a character you want the character to be as real to your audience as the character is to you.Character Development Sheet 015 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
To use this character development sheet, save it on your computer, but leave the author information for the sheet at the bottom. You might need it to find my website to see if I have anything new for you to use. Fill it out for each main character you write about. Then save the filled out sheets in a folder so you can refer to them as needed.
Not all of the information you'll put in the development sheet will be known to your audience, this is just to help you see the character as a real person so you'll understand better how the character would actually react in the situations you throw at them. This way you won't force a character to make a decision that isn't really them.
If the character doesn't seem the type to make the decision you want them to make for the story line, you m

Career: Fashion Model
Gabrielle is an ex model, as she got disgraced by the industry when she fell over on a catwalk when walking in 12 inch heels. When she fell she twisted her ankle so couldn't model for a few months while she recovered. However she was banned from modelling on the catwalk again.
She was forced to move out of her trendy apartment in the Big City and move to a small town, where my other characters live.
Bronte found her one day in the Bluebird Cafe, knowing instantly she wasn't a local. She sort of recognised her so went to go and introduce herself. But Gabrielle made a massive scene about a complimentary slice of chocolate cake and some non-diet soda and stormed out, not letting a bandaged ankle stop her from making a dramatic exit.
Bronte followed her but Gabrielle mistook her interest for prying in her business and snapped at Bronte, hurting her feelings and making her cry.

"Rain, rain go away, come again some other day," my sister sang to herself as she stared out the large window, resting her head in her hands.
"Tillie, what are you doing?"
"I'm asking the rain to go away. I wanna go outside."
I smiled. "I don't know if that's going to work, little sis."
"But it hasta work, Alice! I wanna go to the playground," she pouted, turning around on the window seat to look at me.
Laughing, I sat down next to her and shook bleached white hair out of my eyes. "If Mom doesn't catch us, and you put your rain coat and boots on, then we can go anyway."
"Really?" she asked in astonishment, her blue eyes widening.
When I nodded she grinned, showing the gap in her where her front tooth was supposed to be, and clapped her hands.

Casey was absolutely shocked by what he saw, but he didn't yell or anything. Instead, he just hurried inside the closet and shut the door behind him. At this point the slut didn't really know what to do. His better judgment had flown out the window long ago even though he wasn't all that drunk. And in this situation, he didn't really know what to do other than take advantage. Plus, Shiloh probably wouldn't even remember in the morning. Without a second thought, Casey pinned the blindfolded boy against the free wall of the cluttered closet, going to suck and bite at his neck roughly. It was almost like Casey was on ecstasy; everything about Shiloh was just so soft. The pale flesh of his neck was like baby's skin against Casey's rough, chapped lips and teeth yellowed from smoking.
Shiloh sucked in a breath, his muscles tensing once the rough mouth made contact- toes curling in tightly on the thin carpet. This was surely not the type of surprise that he'd had in mind. Though he honestly h

"Danke bruder!" Ludwig growled in annoyance as he tried to finish making breakfast. Gilbert was still bed ridden because not only has he received several cuts and bruises, but he also (somehow) pulled a muscle when he tried to get away from the thugs. So now he had to lie in bed for several more days until his leg healed. When Ludwig told his brother this little bit of information, Gilbert literally smiled like the Grinch when he plotted the destruction of Christmas. To say Ludwig wasn't nervous or frightened was a complete and utter lie.

Mikey asked though his brother didn't reply. Gerard just stayed in silence, as if he were thinking, before his left foot started tapping furiously the floor.
"How can I tell you?" Gerard whispered, looking at nowhere at all.
"Tell me what?" Mikey asked as his brother got up and walked ahead some steps, giving his back to the teenager as Gerard played with a small ball of paper he had on his hands.
"Mhm, I'm just trying to say that maybe Frank is not for you " he shrugged, looking at his hands as he passed the paper ball through his fingers. They stayed in a long silence, while Mikey stared at the other's back, Gerard smiling though he didn't want Mikey to notice his smile.
"What do you mean?" the teenager asked, before Gerard sighed.

Its contents spilt all over the floor, some things even being smashed beyond repair but it seemed to be the least of her concerns. Getting down on her hands and knees she ran her fingers through the dust and dirt that had been revealed, searching for something. She smashed her fist into the steel wall, the sound echoing all around her but she ignored it despite that the punch had made her wrist practically crumble from the blow. She was covered in dirt and grime from head to toe and the room behind her looked like the scene of a crime with how she'd destroyed it. She'd been searching all night long and didn't plan on giving it up at this point even though it was well into the morning.

They had a color brighter yet more gentle than white could ever be, and she was famous for them. It had taken sixteen years for her to become appreciated for her unique appearance rather than feared, and even though everything had turned out alright she fled from her home. She didn't want to deal with her painful past anymore, despite her parents' constant support, and escaped to a better place.
