Character development ideas
Hi. I've always thought up my characters' backgrounds in a general way in my head. Now I'm looking to transcend my writing. So I decided to write out a whole character development question sheet for each character (like 'describe their parents', 'describe their worst fear' and other questions that really map out what shaped and what currently shapes them). I've never done that much work into characters before, and find it a bit tedious and boring, but I know it's necessary.
Do you have any ideas or tips that help make the process less tedious, or unique ways that you do character developments?
