I needed to get inside my main character’s head. I did the usual, the character lists and questions, filling out a character sketch and daydreaming. But I wanted something more.
So when I saw the idea to scrapbook a character from Author 2 Author blog, I was inspired.
Now, I’m not very artistic so I stuck to basics. Like cutting and gluing. I can do those.
The library was giving away some old magazines, which was perfect for my project. I cut out all the pictures and words from those magazines that pertained to my main character. Then I glued them onto a large piece of paper. I hung it by my writing space.
So now when I’m pondering what my character might do, I stare at the collage and it focus’ me.
How about you? How do you get into your character’s head?
