30-Day Character Meme

If you don’t want to do Camp NaNoWriMo in April, here’s a character development meme that will last for 30 days and allow you to get an in-depth look at your characters. It asks some questions that you might not otherwise think about.

The issue I have with these character memes is that I tend to remember things about characters a bit better if I’m just writing along and developing the character as I go. If I create a new character from a meme, he or she doesn’t feel as real to me. It’s sort of like reading someone’s Facebook page instead of getting to know someone organically (is that the right word?) over a period of days or weeks or months.

But everyone works differently, so enjoy the meme!
