Tuesday Choice Words

I love creating new characters. For my murder mystery plays, they will probably already have a name or a job or an age, which is always a good start. For my novels, though, I've had to form my characters completely from scratch (apart from Hartley - he's been with me for decades).

Janice Hardy's article, The How to Create a Character  Game on the Publishing Crawl website offers a fun way to bring to life a new set of characters. Have a look.

Cesca Major talks about where she writes.

  1. I used to be very good at naming all if my characters, but now I'm having trouble finding good names for the bad guys.

  2. In that situation, I usually create a temporary name until the right one comes to mind.
