The future hasn't arrive yet, so better the past first.

My writing style is very fluid. I create the character and part of their backstory, i.e. who they are, where they're from, what they do, etc, and develop the rest as I go.

I tend to find out as I "get to know them better" (so to speak); both futures and pasts :aww:

I usually don't develop their future at all, and just develop their past XD

I've maneged to create my character's past, even past lifes, but somehow I fail to create their present and future (I mean... I know where they are going, but how they get there is the problem) , it really gets frustating sometimes XD

So true! I feel like adding more characters may help but so far, it helps with the past but not so much with the future for me ;3; It only scrambled up the future even more X'D

Stupid question but I'mma ask anyway XD
Technically, developing their past would help significantly with figuring out what would happen to them in the future but some people may like to work forwards than backwards =P
