Introducing Chris

The new year is nearly here, and with it comes lots of hours of me writing. But I thought today I would share a little piece of planning with you. Chris’ character profile. Now, you might know Chris from A Whisper in the Night. Well, he’s now seventeen years old and he’s got his own story. (Or he will, when I get around to writing it. Don’t worry, I’m working on it.) So, have a character profile.

So there you have it. Now, a couple of extra notes. Normally I have a process of choosing a birthday. I take an online quiz for my character which gives them a star sign. I then stick the dates related to a star sign into a random date selected and boom! That’s their birthday. Chris was slightly problematic though, if I made him an Aires (like the quiz said) he would have been born 2-3 months premature. So, he’s a Leo now.

Also, yes, I do sort my characters into their Hogwarts houses. I’m not sure what this tells me, but it’s fun.

Anyway, I’ve still got a couple of these to do and then a lot of planning, so I’m going to wish you all a happy new year and will speak to you next week!
