What is a character sketch template and why do I need to develop one before I start writing my novel?
Character Sketches are a great way to not only plan out your characters appearance, but if done correctly, they will develop your chacters personality traits and quirks, lineage, the way they speak, look and more. Why is this important? It makes your characters more realistic, which helps the reader relate to them and your story. It’s also a great way to keep your characters consistant, or in character throughout your book or series. I am happy to announce that I have provided another free downloadable worksheet under the Author’s Corner tab of my website. It is a character sketch worksheet template. I’ve also made it editable so you can add additional information if you like. This is the same character sketch worksheet that I personally use to build my characters. Don’t forget to download the beta reader questionnaire as well.
