Exploring Characters

When creating and writing about a character, imagine them as real and try to get to know them. A way of exploring your characters in as much detail as needed is by creating a table.

Try to structure your table like this:

Character Name Appearance Personality Favourite Saying  Favourite Food
Sally Long brown hair, blue eyes, wears pink lipstick and a yellow dress Loud, likes to tell jokes and doesn’t like people being rude “That’s absolutely hilarious!” Ice cream
Fred the Dog Brown fur, four legs,  and a tail that always wags Very energetic, likes to jump up on people “Woof!” Any dog food


You can create your own headings, just make sure that any character you decide to talk about a lot is characterised well.
