Character Worldbuilding Workbook
Characters are the life of a story. The motivation behind every plot. The force behind every system of magic. They are the viewpoint by which we experience the stories that we love. In many ways, they are the reason we love those stories in the first place. For this reason, characters are arguably the single most important element of your story. A good character can make up for a half-formed world or a cliche magic system and questionable plot, but no amount of amazing world-building or fancy, flashy magic and twisting, exciting plot lines will make up for a bad or unlikeable character.
This Workbook is a step-by-step guide to character creation, walking you through everything from your character's traits, history, and relationships to their greatest fears and flaws, their motivation, and overriding story goal. Designed to focus not only on the character themselves, but also on how they relate to your story’s plot and theme and overall story purpose.
Following the 13 steps of this Workbook, you will have a unique, engaging, and relatable character who will stand strong and drive your story through its plot.
