To do this I have used several great titles for creating characters as well as information on the zodiac and stars. Although some people think it is a bunch of `hog-wash' the zodiac is a great way to forming various character traits, personality flaws and foibles that we all encounter in the best fiction `people'.
Enter ... A Writer's Guide to the Zodiac: How the Stars Can Help You Understand Your Characters!
For starters the book will not frighten off the nervous or anyone vaguely doubtful of star signs and the zodiac. It is a slim `little' offering with quick reference to each star sign. But don't be fooled by the `slim', it powers much punch!
The cover is delightful with each star sign stepping out onto the red carpet in high heels bespoke to their star symbol. They're all lovely shoes but take a look at Libra and how the `scales' are balancing. Clever.
So back to the content - the book allowed me to really climb inside the different star sign's minds to ensure my characters are complex, humanly believable and truly three dimensional.
iHubbub Review Quote: "Every aspiring writer has to have a permanent copy of this little book on their reference shelf. Handy when creating your character and while writing easy to dip in and out to check your character traits are in line."
Lots of little ... that word again ... details which mean so much when forming real people in your books.Read more ›
I thouroughly recommend it both for it's ability to help you create vivid ficitonal characters, but as a good read too!
