Having been blessed with an artistic ability I have decided to put it to good use.
Not being able to capture who my main character is and deciding who I want him to be, creates a writing block for me. I never thought of using this technique before.
Putting a face to the name I have settled on has the potential to draw more inspiration than just a character sketch alone.I am able to work through my dilemma by asking myself….
- What would a man who looks like this say?
- How would his voice sound?
- What is going to make him stand out as a main character?
Is this a technique you have used before? Would it help you?
Where do your ideas come from?
Do you use a story idea generator?
Are you gifted with the ability to have many ideas to draw from?
Do you draw your ideas from the stories you read?
IF you could generate a story with a group of writers, each contributing in their own way WOULD YOU?
IS IT possible to have each member either create a character or develop the setting?
ARE YOU SAYING HMMM, I’D LIKE TO DO THAT!……..OR
NOPE, THAT’S NOT FOR ME?
WILL YOU TRY IT OR NOT?
