Surnames are just as important as given names. So, I compiled a list of the websites I use to find my surnames.

This is not a bio format template, it’s more of a character development writing template that I use when it comes to creating my characters. This format works for me personally but you can obviously add/remove anything you find relevant. You can download a formatted (.rtf) version here for easier use.
So I realized that my other giveaway was really Homestucky and I have followers that don’t like Homestuck that much so I’m doing another one.
There’s gonna be a first, second, third, and a fourth place winner.
FIRST PLACE: Anything from any of the stores listed above, a shitty drawing of your otp, and a slightly better fanfiction of your otp.
SECOND PLACE: Anything that costs $35 or less from the stores listed above and a facfiction of your otp.
THIRD PLACE: Anything that costs $20 or less from the stores listed above and a drawing of your otp.
FOURTH PLACE: I wanted to include a cosplay thing in this one too so you get a cosplay prop/wig/whatever of your choosing.

I find that, when writing bios, it’s really helpful to look at a list or a chart like the one above. Picking two or three traits from each chart and building a character based around them will give you a really interesting bio, because they will serve as a reminder that characters need depth and dimension.
Independent and clever.
Independent, clever, pretentious, and stubborn.
The first combination doesn’t come with any flaws, whereas the second will provide a more dynamic character.
HEY GUYS, this showed up on my dash this morning, and I thought it would be helpful if any of you are writing characters and don’t want them to come out as picture-perfect Mary Sues! :)
One thing I’d like to add, though, is that you should make sure the character traits don’t conflict in an oxymoronic way…. for example: Ambitious and lazy, or patient and impulsive. WAT. (Believe it or not, I HAVE seen it happen before! Don’t do it!!)

We have added definitions of each word and an example sentence. Also, we have omitted hinted and insinuated, as we agree with fellow writers’ suggestions that they are not suitable additions to the list.

Hey guys! Sorry its been so inactive around here. I’m slowly but surely getting finished with my finals.
Anyway, I found this and thought I had to share. The way body language can tell how a person is really feeling is something that I consider very interesting. I think it would be a great way to show, in a subtle way, how a character is really feeing.
Hope its useful! And good luck with finals! Hopefully, this place will be a bit more active once summer kicks in.
Hmm, this’ll come in handy. REBLOG
