Character Development – Amelia part 2

24 Sep

If you stopped by in the beginning of this week, you caught the first part of  developing my main character – Amelia. I found these tips and decided to go through them. If you go to the page I got them from, you might notice I have changed/skipped a few but if it doesn’t work for me, I’m just going to move along instead of trying to make it work. I hope that by sharing my process through developing a character, you will get inspired in your writing as well!

4. If your character were an animal, which one would s/he be, and why?

Do the same exercise for:

a piece of music
food
a building.

Oy, i just cannot get ANYTHING for this one! I know I said above I wasn’t trying to follow the tips completely, but I’ve waited almost a week to post this just because of this exercise. But, I’m moving on, I’ve got way too much other work on my book to worry about it =)

5. In which ways would your character behave differently when interacting with –

mother – nervous, apologetic, clumsy, dutiful and daydreams a lot
aunt – a bit clumsy, dutiful, loyal and caring
friend – adventurous, easygoing, caring and loyal

stranger –  curious, easygoing, trusting and apologetic
(potential) love – clumsy, daydreams, innocent and shy

6. Write a short poem in your character’s voice.

Good luck!

Colors bright and bold flutter in the breeze

attached to a basket, sturdy and strong.

The colors unfold by several hands pulling, pulling, pulling

until they lay flat against the vivid grass.

Round bubble goggles are snapped on a forehead,

gloves are pulled on and the scarf is tossed across a shoulder.

The adventure of flight is about to begin.

A turn here and kick and shove there and soon a noise fills the air.

The colors expand and start to float above the proud basket.

Soon they shadow everything around, a large cloud of ingenuity.

What glories await up in the sky, hanging aloft in a big

hot air balloon.
