So you want to make a character?

Well then, here's a tip- Actually make a character.

If you want to tell a story with the character, don't make "just a dude/girl/kid/etc". Think about the situation you're putting the character through, and ask yourself why they're going through it and how they react to it. Then elaborate. You'd be surprised how much easier it can be to give a character life when you give them backstory and purpose.

Now go.
