Notes on Character DevelopmentHey, so here's somethings that I picked up about getting into a character's head, for chara development, and chara contrast w/in a cast. Everything is driven by motivation. If you ever feel like you don't know how a character should act, pick an action then ask yourself "Why does THIS character do that? How would the OTHEr character react in the same situation?" this'll help balance it out so the characters dont' wind too similar.Notes on Character Development4 years ago in Writing More Like This
1. Are the characters internally/externally motivated. Think of it from those writing classes that talked about man vs man conflict, and man vs self conflict.
Ex: A character is victim to a crime. They blame the government for not having done more to prevent it. The source of the conflict is: The government. Therefore they may be externally motivated to improve the government so that doesn't happen again.
Ex: A character witnesses a crime. The government sentences the wrong person to death. The chara feels guilty for having not done more to prove that person'

What Makes Your OC Tick: MemeThis here little written meme-journal entry-thing is not going to ask you what your character looks like. It is not going to ask what your character's favorite color is. It's not even going to ask what your character would do if cupcakes fell from the sky. This, my friends, is going to put you to the test--just how developed is your character. Does his/hers/its psychological build make sense and fit together? If your character isn't that developed, then I hope this helps.What Makes Your OC Tick: Meme5 years ago in Devious Fun More Like This
a) Use as many characters as you please.
b) If you're a big freak about staying in character, I'd recommend that YOU answer. Not your character/s because, let's face it, not all characters would spill their beans.
c) You don't have to tag anyone, but it's highly expected.
d) Don't worry too much about grammar--this is development. Not an English test.

Tips In Effective CharactersNotes on creating effective charactersTips In Effective Characters7 years ago in Writing More Like This
Motivation: When considering a character, always ask yourself why? Question your characters motive for everything they do, think, or say. Delve into the psychology of your character. Dont just make them insane for no reason, or just always happy, or anything that cant have backup. Every thing has a reason, and this should be relatively obvious to your readers, unless you mean to keep it a secret; but a good, solid character has depth. One creates depth through a deep understanding of their characters past, psychology, and motives.
Stick to what you know: Its hard to have a deep understanding for your character, if they have no basis in reality. It doesnt mean you cant have superheros or fantasy elements, but their traits and personality are still realistic. Even in an alternate universe, there is a state of consistency. Lack of consistency creates an unbalance and a poor

Advanced CHARACTER Creation ~ for Fiction
Hero ~ Villain ~ Ally
There are three essential characters in every story. There may be any number of side characters, but in traditional Adventures, and Romances of every stripe (erotic or not,) the main conflict is usually, if not always, a TRIANGLE of complimentary opposites.
Translation: You could tell the whole story with ONLY these Three Characters; perhaps not with any real detail, but you could still do the entire basic plotline.
I'm sure you're familiar with the names Hero & Villain or Antagonist & Protagonist already. Those are pretty darn standard. However, always there, though seldom named is a Third character, the Ally -- the Companion to the Hero or Villain.
