It’s a good thing I have a deadline to post a novel-writing update on the 23rd of each month because it forced me to overcome a little writer’s block on my character study assignment. As of now, I’m still on track to complete this novel by 2026! A few hours ago? Not the case.
I’m still busy working on my first character and have so far written about these topics:
- Where she lives now
- Some stories she remembers about her childhood
- Her job
- One of her biggest fears
- Her biggest secret
- What motivates her
I still have to write about a conflict in her life, her happiest memory and her appearance and mannerisms. The last thing I plan to figure out before my class in July is her name and other demographics. I’m having fun! She’s getting a voice, which is exciting. She’s also getting complicated, which seems good too. Here’s my progress tracker.
