Get to know your character–3 steps to get you acquainted:

If you want to write compelling and convincing characters like the Breaking Bad boys, then you need to get to know your characters really well. How?

Here arebreak bad 3 steps to get you acquainted:

  • Write a one paragraph (okay two) profile of your protagonist/villain/supporting characters and so on. Write something that you can actually use in the novel/story.

  • List out 5 or 6 of the most momentous influential events in your character’s life. Briefly, describe the influence each incident had on your character’s actions, temperament and habits.

  • Write a one-page, first person monologue in which your character(s) describe the above events; how they happened and what they meant to said character. Go deep here. Toss off your editor’s cap and write this the way your character would talk to a trusted friend, or in her confession to the police.
