“Finding” My Characters

Sometimes it gets hard to write well, especially if you only have a vague idea of your characters. This is one of my biggest problems when it comes to writing fiction. I have blurry vision and can’t see my characters or the setting very well.

I’ve devised a way to get around this blurry vision by using Google Images to search for my characters. For A Touch of Magick, I found pictures of people who could be my characters and used them as reference. It gives my mental eye glasses so that I can see in detail. My writing goes from being blah to brilliant and it doesn’t cost a thing.

    Gathering pictures of your characters is a fantastic idea. I often base my characters on people I know to help me describe their physical features, not for personalities.

    Good to chat with you last nite.
