Creative Writing: Character Creation (MINI) PDF

Welcome to July 1st, 2021!

What a rippling year it has been so far for many Creative Writers around the world.

During the past 18 months (life in lockdown,) I’ve corresponded with fantastic Creative Writers and Creators within the industry for the arts.

Networking has been one of my positives to come out of these unprecedented times. Throughout a plethora of conversations, the topic swayed to characters and how to create them. As some of you may already know, I specialise in writing short fiction, my ultimate form of narrative – the characters I have created and enhanced are believable and captivating. Even the deceitful characters are loved by an audience that appreciates written pieces of art.

Following excellent feedback from my fellow Creative Writers, I have made a MINI guide for anyone that needs it.

I hope you enjoy this FREE PDF, and it helps you develop the art of creating characters.

Remember that help is always available from DAMEUNIQUE.blog for anyone that needs it.’ Unique

Please note: This version of Character Creation PDF is the MINI version that is available as a FREE download. This guide is to be used as a tool to help Creative Writers create characters.

***I should add that a PRO version of this document will be published at a later date.***

As this is the first document of this kind that I have shared with my fellow Creative Writers, I would appreciate any feedback that you may have. (Please use the comments below, or get in touch via e-mail.)

A Saturday of Significance – 25.09.2021

You came to me and apologised.

I hadn’t expected it but I do appreciate it. I’m happy you did last night – it seems that you’re here to stay.

Sometimes I know I can be impulsive and I run away as fast as I can.

I’m a mini fan of ginger. Walls up, I can always do.

I sometimes imagine you’ll think one thing over the other and I convince myself that is the way.

I think maybe one day, we should spend a weekend together in New York City. Come back and adopt a rescue dog.

You said sorry and I felt it.

Thank you.

We are feeling this space and I feel sprouts, seeds and aubergines. You feel my hands.

What can say?

I’m ready.

Boxed In Boxed Down

You say one thing and do another.

You’re like, ‘ask me anything, we can talk about anything.’

I speak and you act like you’re shocked by my choice of words. Then you go silent for a while – resurfacing as nothing happened and ask, ‘are you okay?’

I mean, we are grown!

Yet, you act as though I have poisoned our conversation and crawl back to base, only to whimper a little.

Why are you so conformed to a false narrative, delivered by our society?

I look at you and think? Right! Okay!

The things you choose to do, allow me to see you under one hundred, hundred-watt lights.

Get some sealant and box yourself in.

Stay down.

Welcome September 2021

Welcome, September 2021!

I’ve been dreading your arrival and now you’re here, I want to embrace you and remind myself that I need to put in the work. There was so much I had wanted to achieve in August and unfortunately, I did not.

Even yesterday, I confided in a friend and expressed that I feel like I have failed. They then asked, why? I explained I had set many goals for August and unfortunately, I barely achieved anything.

Less of the dwelling.

It is now September and as you would be right in assuming that I’ve carried over the unmet goals and I’m currently amending my weekly planners, as I strive to see the result of all my endeavours.

I aim to visit a few places I have never explored before and to spend a few hours in a cosy, café. Oh, yes! I almost forgot I’m going to complete the leisurely reading that I started in August and tease out areas of inspiration and motivation, for new creative pieces.

September is about rejuvenating my focus and practising an hour of deep work per day. After all, looking back and feeling sad about what I did not accomplish, won’t change the fact.

Therefore, I must continue on my pathway and sweep the sticks out of the way.
