Day two: How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
I have had several characters show up in my stories. Each has their own collection of characters that play a part, whether minor or major. Depending on how the story is going and which one I am currently writing, I can have as many as 20 characters who keep reappearing at various points in the story and as little as 10. Now that includes all characters good and bad, major or minor.
When it comes to the sex of my characters, it varies. I definitely feel more comfortable writing the female perspective but that’s because I am one myself. I try and sometimes succeed in writing the male perspective but it a lot more difficult then you would think.
With each of my three stories that I am working on the most I have one main protagonist and one or two antagonists.
- Noah vs. Madoc and the Dallions
- Selene vs. The Voice/Ezra
- Aislynn vs. Cadeyrn and the Voice
Each of my protagonists have the support and family through out the novels as minor characters, and depending on which one you are looking at they are going to have few supporting members up to several.
