    This is great! I’m in the middle of creating a few characters for my next book and I’ll be trying out your template today!

    Rebecca did a wonderful job presenting this character template, something all serious novel writers should follow if they want realistic characters in the plots of their stories.

      Thank you! It took me 10+ years to evolve this template to its current form, but it finally feels comprehensive. (Which means I’ll probably think of something new to add soon. 🙂 )

    I’m always impressed by the generosity of writers towards other writers. Thank you for sharing. I have duly nicked it to add to my own rather immature character development regime.

      One of my favorite things about being a writer is we’re a friendly bunch. We’re all readers and all want to see a lot more books out there. Good luck with your stories, Captain Black. I hope my character template helps!
