8 Years Ago


Want to be like JK Rowling? It aint easy. First, you need characters...

-Look outside. Look at people you dont know. Maybe you can make up names, characteristics, family.
-look at your family members. In a story, you can write about the characteristics your family member might have but not use the regular name.

Does that help a little?

in my writing it always helps to start by basing my characters on people I know. When i get to know them well enough they usually end up quite differently but then again that's just my starting point.

@softkitty exactly. Focus on people you know - it will be much easier.
