In Search of a Character
Rory C. Keel
When starting a story, we need characters like a Protagonist, the main character, and an Antagonist the villain. There may even be secondary characters that play a role in your writing.
So where do characters come from? Where do we get them?
The easiest way for me to find a character is to think about people I know in real life.
This idea could include friends, family, or someone you just met.
If you have a good imagination, then creating characters by mixing fantasy and reality.
Are you coming up with blanks? Then a trip to the shopping mall with notepad in hand can offer some relief as you observe people as they shop. Another quick starter that might help is to do an internet search for movie star images.
