Lizard’s Character Chart
Now there’s one thing I want to note first, I don’t like to plan out my characters all that much. I get bored when I know everything about a character. It’s fine if you do, but in my experience, it doesn’t help me to know too much unless I’ve written it into the draft first. If I write down more on the list than I’ve already put into the draft, there’s a chance that I’ll forget to include something important.
I try not to know too much more about the character than any person who reads the story would. This is my chart. Use it or don’t. Follow my rules or don’t – I won’t know the difference. This is just a few things I like to know when creating a character. It’s part of my process.
