019: Speculative Fiction and Characters

September 23, 2015
Continuing with our mini-series, this week we're talking about how to build characters in a speculative fiction setting. We explore several different approaches to character creation, including basing a character off of the MBTI personality theory, a single driving characteristic, a specific character arc or journey that the character has to undertake internally, or just off of the fact that they are very different from your own experience, rather than being an extension of you (as most characters undoubtedly will be). In the process, we come up with a really interesting story that involves all four of the characters we make (plus one more that came as a natural result of the story creation) in some very dynamic ways.
