30 Days Of Writing Questions
21. Do any of your characters have children? How well do you write them?
Strange question. I slowly begin to wonder, who came up with those questions first?
Anyway, I'd say this question depends on the point of view. When I think of my main characters, none of them has children or cubs. But my supporting acts has children, like in my 'Voodoo Island' Richard O'Connell has a daughter called Cathryn.
Cathryn, who's supposed to be my main character, for her I used several techniques to 'write' her, e.g.:
- Personal CV incl. her look
- Chart with all her connections/relationships to family, friends and other characters in the story
- Profile with strengths and weaknesses, favors and dislikes, abilities and handicaps.
