Character Help

This may sound silly, but out of curiosity I downloaded the High School workbook for the Young Writer's program on NaNo. It's a very complete workbook that asks you to fill in questions about your characters, plot, etc. I've just sat down to fill some of it out and have discovered that it's been extremely useful in filling in some of the gaps I've been missing. For instance, I now know why my MC is at her job (instead of "just because"), what her pet peeves are, etc. - all fodder for more words toward the final word count.

If you're interested in checking it out, go here : http://ywp.nanowrimo.org/workbooks

Right, back to the workbook...

Oh, I meant to do that for ages and never got around to it! Maybe I'll do that if I get blocked ("if" should actually be "when", LOL). Good luck!! MadyV
