Project Description

Create Your Character

Open the Comprehensive Character Attribute Form, copy it, and paste it into a document in your word processor.

Open the Character Flaw List and select a flaw for your character.

Fill in as many answers as you can on the Comprehensive Character Attribute Form.

In a new document write a one paragraph character sketch, incorporating important attributes from your answers on the Comprehensive Character Attribute Form. Be sure to include your character’s flaw, and a description of how they got that way.

When you're done, if you like, share your idea with us in the Community.
