We’ll all seen them in magazines or on-line. Personality quizzes.
You know the questions:
You like to be engaged in an active and fast-paced job – sometimes.
You enjoy having a wide circle of acquaintances – depends on the day.
It is in your nature to assume responsibility – only if I feel responsible.
Your actions are frequently influenced by emotions – not as much anymore.
You often do jobs in a hurry – all the time.
Sometimes I have trouble figuring out my own personality let alone my characters. I’m not sure how people have their character all figured out before they start writing. I’ve started a new project and I really can’t decide what kind of personality I want this character to have; moody, caring, emotional, or all of the above. I’m even having problems with my main character. The one I’ve already written a whole book about. I don’t know how I want to her to be feeling right now.
I’ve really become stuck and I know I need to write through it and see what comes out, but I know how much work it was to edit the last book.
Anyway besides climbing a mountain, it’s been a very frustrating week. Any thoughts on how you develop your characters many dimensions would be helpful.
