To Create a Character
Are you starting a story? Do you have an incomplete, flawed, or no character at all? It's happened to me many times and in my struggles to perfect my creations, I have learned a few things. I present you with seven easy steps with a challenge each to get you thinking.
Grab a piece of paper and a pencil. Let's start…
Step 1: Past
When creating a character, you must first establish a past. Even a person with amnesia has a past, they just don't remember it. Pasts are important, they show what shaped the person and why they are the way they are today.
If your character has a scar, why? If they have amnesia, why? If they have a phobia of water, why?
Remember one thing: there is always a reason.
Challenge: Write a brief story (vignette) of your character's past to familiarize yourself with the way things were.
Step 2: Appearance
You may have a certain idea, a vague idea, or no idea at all as to how your character will look. First, think of their

Wilbur is an old program (which is funny if you consider 5 years old.  [Okay, now that it's well over a decade old now, it's not as funny...aging...]  But it is very simple to use to make planets quickly.  It hasn't been updated in a long time, but I checked the website and the program and it seems to work well enough.

Creating A Species: A guide and helpful tips.
Introduction
Creating a species isn't the easiest thing to do, and I know. I've made multiple species before. You may not know it, but design isn't the only thing that matters in creating a species. Just like humans, and fairies, and dragons: there's a lot more to a them than what they look like. What they eat, and maybe even what they believe in plays a big role on the species' life style. This guide/tutorial here is for fantasy creatures, but I guess this guide/tutorial can help you out anyway. I hope this guide/tutorial can help you out on creating a species!
Making the species.
The Name.
    Now, I have to say, this is the hardest part of creating a species. I'm not going to get too much in detail with this, but it's rare that I use random letters, or well, to an extent at least. It's nice to have a name that "rolls off the tongue", or sounds nice when one says it. Which means that it wouldn't be good to have somethi

Ultimate Species Profile
I tried to cover everything possible, but there were so many questions that fit into more than one profile sheet. This was ultimately designed for developing a creature of your own (that is not a real animal or well known fantasy creature) to the point where it has its own civilisation. If your creature was intended to be just an animal in your world, then ignore all the complex civilisation questions. I intend to make a profile for societies and world/planets later on.
