Yep, you guessed it. I’m talking character charts here. It’s such a simple concept, but one (I’m embarrassed to admit) that never occurred to me before. But now I’m excited to try a few of these exercises:
- write 100 declarative sentences about character
- describe character’s bedroom or car
- make a list of where character lives, birthday, job, family life, all that good stuff
This is going to revolutionize the way I write. If you think I’m getting a little too excited about this, you’re probably right. Still, I bet it will streamline the process for me, and I’ll take what help I can get. Either way, I’ll keep you posted.
One last thing. If you thought this article was going to be about chore charts or bar graphing, my sincerest apologies. I thought you would’ve guessed it.
