Hi! I'm Ed Vassie. I'm a screenwriter and a recovering zombie. Check out some of my scripts and my screenwriting blog here.

All things screenwriting.

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.  

Happy writing.  

 Sorry keyboard, I didn't mean to call you those names. It won't happen again.
