I’m happy to say that I’ve completed all the character profiles and I’ve also written one page (for each character) telling the story from each characters point of view. This is handy in trying to work out their individual storylines, what motivates them and where they are going to end up. I found it to be a useful process and learned even more about them and had to adjust their profiles again.
During this time, I’ve also been building my world. With each character, I found something new to be added to the make up of the world. For example, I needed to be able to work out how one of my characters would know an hour had gone by, so I had to research sundials. Now, although the timing isn’t exact because the sun rises at different times of the day and its position changes with the seasons, my character will have his hour so he’d better use it wisely. 🙂
Next step… I want to go through each character’s story and make a list of scenes they need to advance their storyline, then I’ll add the main plot points and then I’ll assign them into chapters. Sounds easy…doesn’t it?!?
