So Kay has had this really interesting way of getting to know her characters. She calls it a character bible. She has all these pictures that look like/symbolize/remind her of her characters, and they're all pasted/taped into a notebook. For me, it's fun to look through it because she has some serious artistic talents. I finally decided to make my own, and slowly started gathering pictures. Well, today I finally printed them off (read I gave Kay my USB because she's the only one that can work the printer), and I put together the beginning of my character bible!
It's actually incredibly helpful. It makes the characters easier to imagine, and it actually gives me ideas for certain details I wasn't sure of before (like where one of my more mysterious characters hails from). Not to mention it makes me feel all important because I have visuals of my novel. ;)
Fare thee well, friend!
