Hey guys…I made a character. Meet Ophelia….and that’s all I have, a name.
Jokes! (Only slightly)
I have a solid plot and now I am just building up my characters which is actually a fun process. These are some words from my notebook about Ophelia that I have scribbled down.
14 years old but then 17 after time jump.
Gentle normally but has a lot of pent up anger, quickly trusting which leads her into unsavory trouble. A good friend- recklessly brave. Explosive temper when really infuriated- (later in novel).
Mannerism: Likes to hold people’s hands as she can sense whether they are powerful or not by the amount of energy in them. Touches hair but quickly stops because she doesn’t want her hair to become tangled.
Appearance: Brown skin- mocha? Kinky hair which doesn’t blow in the wind and it reaches the end of her neck- Jet Black. A scar from childhood spots on her left check. Full lipped, smallish nose and forehead. Long and skinny.
And there is more, but that is how the start of my notes look like. I have different character profiles in my head and I think over the weekend I will start putting them on paper. If you didn’t guess by the little extract I am doing a fantasy type of novel and I will tell you one thing more….it involves the basic elements!
I will disclose more closer to November, but that’s all your getting for now (hehehehe).
How are you characters shaping up? Can I say hi to them? Comment below about how your getting on with NaNoWriMo!
I’ll write soon 🙂
