So, since I feel like I haven't been very talkative of late, I thought I'd ease back in with something more simple.
So there's been this meme going around in a few spots on my f-list, and darn it if I didn't start thinking of answers for certain characters myself. So, if a meme is your thing...
Name a character I've written about, and I will tell you three things that I think are essential to keep in mind when writing that character.
Occasionally I'll have issues with writing a character on it's own, and I've found that sometimes if I keep his/her interactions with another character in mind, it helps break through the block. I've dubbed this a touchstone character in my mind, although darned if I know if there's a real term for this. If the character you name is one of the lucky ones, I'll throw in a fourth answer, in how I see their relationship, and what I think it brings out in the named character, and why I think it's so important.
Just about any character or fandom that I've either written or role-played is fair game. I know a lot of you aren't familiar with my RP fandoms, but the big ones were Dragonball Z/GT, Megaman X (Zero mostly), and some of the older Final Fantasy games (6-8).
