I really love working out character details. Usually, it’s something I prefer to do as I go, writing them in whenever they occur to me, but sometimes it’s fun to pick a topic like height/body type and work it out for a whole group of characters at once.
I did this the other day for how my character’s smell. It’s something that I realized I had gone into a fair amount of detail about already for many of them, but it was fun to think about it in greater detail (and scent/perfume is a topic I’m interested in anyway). I’ve been thinking about how their voices sound, too. I have a very clear picture of that in my head when I write for a character, and I often wonder if it comes off the same way in reading.
So does everyone use Origin now, despite the fact that it’s DRM-based? It seems like almost everyone does. I lived through the early days of SecuROM with TS2, and I can’t help but be wary of it. Is this a total non-issue these days or am I missing something?
Oh, that’s so true! I can’t take the pressure of a “nice” journal at all. And I hate the first blank page of any new book so much that I usually jump right to the second. Haha!
