Crafting Characters #scriptchat #amwriting #screenwriting
I'm creating characters for my AFTRS script project, specifically the protagonist and antagonist.
When I started with my antagonist I was getting a bit frustrated, a little sweary even, because I was having trouble coming up with their habitual actions.
So, after a couple of hours of procrastination, I brought up the habitual actions for my protagonist and just started writing ones that were the complete opposite of theirs. While the habitual actions I came up with might not make it into the final antagonist bio, they did get my brain working and helped me come up with some alternatives that I think will work.
Hope this helps anyone who's having the same problem.
