Writer’s Tool: The Character Sheet

Hey protagonists!

For a while, I’ve been brainstorming an idea for a simple little tool that I could use in my writing to help keep me organized. One of the things I have the hardest time keeping track of is keeping track of all of my different characters: Their appearance, their history, relationships, and flaws. Previously, I’d just been taking notes, but that was boring and uninteresting. So I came up with this handy dandy character sheet!

Writer's Character Sheet-1

With this handy dandy little tool, it’s much easier to reference back to specific things when I need them. Things such as what the character’s hair color is, how tall they are, their age and birthday, and so on and so forth. I’m actually really proud of this and I’ve been using it myself for a little while now. Plus, if you ever get an idea for a character, but don’t know where they belong, you can just slap down their information and then BOOM! You have a character in reserved ready to go.

If you want, you can download the PDF down below so you can try it out too!

Strengths and Weaknesses: What Really Makes a Character Strong?

 

So often do we hear talk of strong female characters, how there are so few, and why so few people can write them effectively. This is definitely a major problem, not just with women but with men, in that characters that are supposed to be viewed as strong willed simply aren’t, and that’s because there is a fundamental misunderstanding of what makes a strong character.

Typically, when you think of a strong character, you think physically: They can hold their own in sticky situations, they think on their feet, they don’t need to be saved, and they can stick up for themselves. These are important factors, yes, but these are not the traits that make a character strong. A strong character requires one simple thing: a flaw.

Spring-Heeled Jack is Permanently Free!

Hello Protagonists!

So, I’ve got some news for everyone. As you can tell by the title, I’ve decided to make Spring-Heeled Jack permanently free on Smashwords! The reasoning being…sales. I’ve realized that as a newbie author, people are skeptical to purchase anything from me, even for as low a price as 99 cents. However, if someone is charitable enough and wants to support me, the Amazon download is still 99 cents.

That’s all I wanted to say today folks, so thank you very much, and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Last Chance!

So today, everyone, is the final day you can get your hands on a free copy of Spring-Heeled Jack! I’d take this opportunity while you can because after today it’s going to be a whopping $.99! I know, it’ll break your wallet for sure, but these are things that must be done.

Now again, you do not need a tablet or anything in order to download it. If you’d like, you can download it solely as a pdf file directly onto your computer if you so desire.

But, if you don’t like eBooks, have no fear! Physical releases are going to come in June and they’ll be great! I don’t have much to say about them now, but just know that I’m putting a lot of time into them.

So anyways protagonists, that’s all for today. After this, I’m going to be working hard on New Game+ so keep your eye out for that! Thank you very much, and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
