I don’t do anything to specifically get to know them, like fill out a character bio or anything. I used to try to do that, but it feels so wooden to me. I just explore their personality and history through brainstorming, sound boarding to friends, and writing. By the time I start writing, I have a good grasp on them, but I always find out more as I write their story. I would have to say the most major thing I do that helps me get to know them is sound boarding with my friends. I get little ideas for scenes and interactions and I throw them at various friends in chat and they spazz with me and throw ideas back. It’s great.
(I’m skipping tomorrow’s prompt and in it’s place will be a Bullet Journal post.)
