Michelle, I have not done one damn thing to my two current stories. All I have done is work on that new one that I teased you with. I'm on chapter 7 now. The world has gone mad!

Well thank you. I never stopped working on it, I was just not in a position to update it. I'm working on. . .I think it is. . . chapter 22 or 23 right now and I am hoping to be nearing the end but there is so much drama to tie up I may have to go near 30 and I don't wanna.

Well I'm glad you're enjoying it. I wanted to make Billie Joe and Adrienne a real couple with real quirks to them. They're fun to write as well.

Oh they definitely are. I love writing about BJ because I feel like he can relate to soo many different types of characters.

I mean, if you wanted to make him evil it'd work for him.
Romantic? Dramatic? .. It all works.

I just like a quirky element to my characters. I like to emphasize the flaws in them that make them great. They're not perfect by any means and I like to magnify that.

Question for everyone:

When you're coming up with an OC, how do you like to come up with them? Like, where do you get their characteristics from?

I draw alot of my OCs personality from myself.

Sorry if the question's confusing. Rolling Eyes

I usually like to get characteristics out of real people, so that the character seems real. I always like to over-analyze everything, so for example, when coming up with Whatsername's character for my story (yes, I knwo some of Whatsername's characteristics are said on American Idiot and stuff, but you only get Jesus/Jimmy's view of her, in my story I had to come up with her opinions on herself and the iage she has of herself and it's nothing ALIKE J.'s view) I started to figure out her family, the place where she lived, and what everything was like in her world so I could get the basics of her characteristics from her roots, like we all have different personalities based on the way we were raised and where we were raised and everything. Then I think of which characteristics of real persons around me I think that would suit her and who she is. Sometimes (depends on the character and its roots) a lot of the characteristics I come up with are mine, based on the way I am. Sometimes I take it all from other people's personality and characteristics, but I don't like to base the character on the characteristics of just one or two different persons, that'd take a lot of the credit of the story away from me. By taking characteristics of a lot of different persons (and some are just made up, or got from no-one I know), you have to find a way to make the character have a serie of believes that all fit together, so it seems real, but also give them some self-contradictory thoughts, otherwise they wouldn't seem real anyways.

I hope the answer wasn't cofusing.

And I just read all the ideas about the subforum. I think I love At the Library as the name and I also like a lot the description that Michelle came up with.
