Last Sunday the Spilled Ink Writing Club worked on creating fabulous fictitious characters! Each member was given about 15 minutes to come up with whatever kind of character they wanted. President Casie handed out useful guides to help everyone get inspired and to understand what goes into making a character with many layers and details! The key to making great characters is dimension! Everyone who made a character gave them hobbies, quirky traits, hilarious tendencies, and interesting backstories. We had playful young children, adorable older woman, dramatic sailors, and more!
Why were we doing this? Because the members of Spilled Ink are preparing to make their 2nd annul town, what we call The Town Project. The club members will join together and make a communal town with intricate detail! Everyone will help created the population, the town centers, the characters, and more! This project will take place throughout the semester, so be sure to check out our next meeting which is Sunday, February 12th!
