HEY GUYS! I haven’t been on this blog in a really long time! Wanna know why? Because I don’t use it! But I do use the blog strid3rcest.tumblr.com you should check it out :)

I find that, when writing bios, it’s really helpful to look at a list or a chart like the one above. Picking two or three traits from each chart and building a character based around them will give you a really interesting bio, because they will serve as a reminder that characters need depth and dimension.
Independent and clever.
Independent, clever, pretentious, and stubborn.
The first combination doesn’t come with any flaws, whereas the second will provide a more dynamic character.
HEY GUYS, this showed up on my dash this morning, and I thought it would be helpful if any of you are writing characters and don’t want them to come out as picture-perfect Mary Sues! :)
One thing I’d like to add, though, is that you should make sure the character traits don’t conflict in an oxymoronic way…. for example: Ambitious and lazy, or patient and impulsive. WAT. (Believe it or not, I HAVE seen it happen before! Don’t do it!!)
i’d also like to point out, which i’m positive plenty of others have as well, that people are made up of more than “two or three” traits.
also, as helpful as a stepping stone this may be considered, it’s incredibly limited. keep that in mind.
Official notice! I will be signing out of my quality-thatsme blog, essentially forever (I may/may not continue to post the occasional tutorial, etc on there) and will be using my (very) new URL ayoungmanstoodinhisbedroomand (its long, I know, but I really like it) so yeah, messages answered privately will go there and posts I make will be from there (my queue just has to run out) I will be refollowing everyone I am currently following now on there also :3
