Basic Profile Time

You should have an idea of three or four of your characters by now. Today, you’re going to make a basic profile for each of the characters that you have already created. The Basic Profile template is the same as last year:

Basic Profile-Template

You should be doing this on a lined piece of paper, double-spacing between different sections. This sheet is meant to be a reference for when you are writing.

BASIC PROFILE-Character’s Name




Eyes: (colour/any unusual traits)

Hair: (length, cut, colour)

Basic Description: (what someone who saw them on the street would describe this character’s appearance)

Personality: (3-4 dominant traits in this person)

Basic Bio: (1-3 paragraph summary of their past)

Prompt Time

Write 1, 000 words in which one or more of your characters get lost in a forest.
