    Dating Your Character

    Dating Your Character is based on the principle that interesting characters actually help you create in the writing process. The DYC Method doesn’t start from the outside in, like many methods do. It doesn’t layer physical descriptions onto archetypal outlines, then color in the flaws and motivation to make that thumbnail sketch more personal. DYC focuses on the importance of the individuality of characters: their eccentricity, drive, and relative “basis in fact” inspired in part by people you know…or you yourself.
