The Character Development Planner was designed to aid writers of fiction - both novelists and screenwriters - in developing great characters. Many writers struggle in this area, with many wondering how they can better develop their characters in order to better know and write them. Character development is an important consideration when writing fiction. Ask any professional writer who specializes in character-driven novels or scripts and they will more-than-likely tell you that well-developed characters are just as vital as well-developed stories. Developing and creating great characters can take some serious effort and time on your part. Whether working on the protagonist, antagonist, or any of the minor, yet no less important characters, a tool like The Character Development Planner can help you with this integral step in the writing process. With over 50 prompts in 4 different categories, the 25 Character Plans contained in this book are a great way to really dig deeper into the lives of your characters to develop them more fully. All you have to do is fill-in the blanks to start building your characters - their backstories, wants and desires, family and friends, and so on. How you choose to fill out the Character Plans in this book is entirely up to you - you can be as basic or as detailed and creative with your answers as you like. But remember, if you want to create characters that really stand-out and carry the story, you will need to have a clear picture of them in mind when you begin writing your novel or screenplay - the more thorough you are in the development stages, the better you will know your characters.
