Character Biographies

As you get to know your characters, you should be building a biography for them. It can be short and snappy or it can be detailed to the point it could be its’ own little book.

Whenever I start on a character’s bio, it usually goes like this:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Birthday
  • Physical appearance
  • Family members
  • Friends
  • Quirks
  • Backstory
  • And etc.

Creating a biography for your characters will also help with consistency. You don’t want your readers to read about your heroine’s eyes being described as blue in the beginning only for them to suddenly be green in the middle.
