It’s important to know your main character inside and out. In order to write him or her believably, you must be able to tell the readers what he / she is thinking, how they would react to a situation, and even what they like to wear.
If your main character is just in the beginning stages (or even if you’re looking to do a little character soul searching), take a minute to fill out this freebie worksheet! It will allow you to think hard about what your character loves, wants, and truly desires. Once you have this filled out, you’re on the right track to getting to know your character even better.
