Test Your Characters: NaNoWriMo Tip #17

How well do you know your characters? Using the handy and quick character tests at Character Building Workshop, you can get to know your character better before finishing your manuscript.

Here’s more about the test: “The Character Building Workshop is an independent study of your characters using these online questionnaires. The process of filling out the forms will help you, the writer, learn about your characters on a more in-depth level. Once the questions have been answered, you will know more about the roles your characters play in your story. No longer will they be names on a page; they will become living, breathing beings as you continue writing your story.”

This is our seventeenth NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
