Welcome all to the support thread for September 2023.
Happy Birthday to September babies.
Thank you, everyone who continues to participate in these threads – it helps others when you do participate, sometimes more than you think.
The first weekend of this month is a holiday for those of us in the US.
Some of us will be spending the time on Starfield, which was released yesterday. Some of us will be using the time to write and others will be doing their own thing.
It is also “back to school time” for many.
If anyone has specific questions or concerns I may help with, please let me know.
This month’s support focus is on writing characters. The following articles helped me, and I hope they will help others as well:
The first article covers the basics. It is a good introduction for new writers and a solid refresher for experienced writers that want to remind themselves of the basics.
The second article is a checklist type of article that helps define specific ways to further develop your characters. Each entry is a summary, but there are 33 of them to help direct you further.
The last article is a little more advanced, focusing on character relationships in particular.
My goal this month is to work on my common route for Patchwerks, taking the feedback I received and make improvements.
This will most likely be a multi-month effort.
May everyone complete their September goals.
