  • You need to determine that your brain is necessary.

Creating memorable characters: 

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

I took notes at this writer’s panel at a writers conference. Any inaccuracies or misinformation in any of these notes is the fault of the note taker.

  • Base characters on people you know.
  • You learn about a character by their actions and behavior.
  • You can base a character on an actor and you can review a video to refresh yourself on their behavior.
  • Alter your subjects different enough so that people can’t identify who the original person was.
  • Need to have internal consistency.
  • Villains don’t see themselves as evil.
  • Create core elements that readers can relate to.
  • Character may be a quick thinker
  • A character may not be swayed by criticism.
  • A minor character might make observations that will let the reader know about a character.
  • Scot Card: had a taxi driver that showed a lot of personality.
  • Give a character their unique tick. i.e.: eye patch or behavior.
  • You need to have some pig-headed characters that will add conflict in the story.
  • When you create a character you make a first assumption of why they are the way they are. People may make the same assumption as you so find a reason of character that is more unique.
  • Interview your character.
  • How someone responds to a situation defined what type of person they are. There is a girl who enters a river to protect/ rescue a kitten. Or a character has arms full of rocks to fight against a 4 ft. spider.
  • Search the text of your manuscript for each character’s dialog and actions to make sure that individual is unique and consistent. Mg: some will actually color code the dialog to better catch differences.
  • Speech patterns is a good way to make a character unique from others.
  • Visual cues also define a character such a red boots the squeak.
  • Many authors will create a character bible to keep track on the history and individual traits of each character such as ticks, speech patterns, their friends and colors they usually wear. you will want to include the first time they are introduced to the story. You might also reference the various scenes they are in after the first time. You can do a copy and paste to bring info from the manuscript. If you have it in a doc you and do an easy search for the relevant info you need.
  • Authors who are good depicting children are Steven King, James Howell, and Bruce Coeval.
  • 12 yr. old kids want to read about characters.
  • There are online beta groups.

This was a great fireside. Here are some of my notes. Any misinformation is the fault of my typing and note taking.

 

Sister Christenson:

  • 3ed Nephi 25:2 healing in his wings. Growing up as calves in the stall.
  • If a boy can love the calf he raised, God loves us as he watches over us.
  • 2 Nephi 26:24: He does nothing but to benefit the world.
  • Testimony that Christ appeared to Joseph Smith.

Brother Christensen:

  • 1 Nephi? 2:24: God does nothing but to benefit of the World. God is not in the habit to turn a deaf ear to his children.
  • 2 Nephi 9:29 he knoweth all things.
  • In his infinite wisdom and mercy, our Father in heaven permitted us to suffer through tragedy so we can have personal experience with the atonement with Christ…
  • Trials don’t happen because he mad at as. It so God can show us he loves us.
  • In today’s world, it is not enough that the church is true. We need to absolutely know that God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon is true.
  • Where will you go if you leave the church?
  • Sin is highly addictive 2. We don’t know when we leave and you can take care of the win. 3. Once we decide to procrastinate overcoming our sin fix the Spirit of God will leave us. (Alma 24 :)
  • Jacob 4:14
  • When you lose the spirit the veil of stupidity encircles us. The Holy Ghost never abuses anyone of us in any way. Only the ‘other spirit <Satan>” is the one who abuses us.
  • Making sense of suffering, book: our vision improves when our condition worsens. It creates an occasional window pane/pain to access the veil and reverently looks at the whole plan which is the same scene we can trust.
  • Largely because of TV (and the internet) instead of looking over at great spacious building we are living in it. Br. Packer
  • An unseen power will hold your hand as you hold to the iron rod (packer)
  • His mother calls President Urdorf the James Bond of the general authorizes.
  • Why do anti-Mormons hate Book of Abraham: because it talks about apostasy and the plan of salvation.
  • Book of Mormon is not about Lehi and his family it is about how to come unto Christ.
  • Heleman 5:12 build your foundations on the rock of Christ … WHEN Satin brings forth his mighty winds. You cannot fall.
  • The mist of darkness will cover you at time to time that you will not be able to see your way even a short distance away. But you can feel your way through the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Through life) Brigham Young.
  • When people are called to positions, the Lord has a hand of it.
  • 2 Nephi 2: message given through Jacob by father Lehi> in Jacob> in verse 7.
  • Most misbehavior can be attributed to a wound. i.e.: hurt, betrayal, abuse etc.
  • Christ’s invitation: let me heal you.
  • For Br. Stevenson, 90% of his prayers are answered through the scriptures and conference talks.
  • Give everything to him and expect nothing
  • Almost 26:22. See how often given is used.
  • Whom God calls he qualifies.
  • The more we know of Jesus the more we will trust him the more we will become like him. Never let a day go by that you don’t search the scriptures. Especially the Book of Mormon.
  • 1 Nephi 6:4: for the fullness of my intent is to persuade man to come unto the God of Abraham Jacob and xxx and be saved.
  • Alma 24: the plan of redemption begins in our lives the second we begin to change our lives.
