Uh oh. It’s week 18 in the Marketing for Romance Writers bog challenge, and the topic is how do I work up character/setting profiles. Short answer: I don’t.
I have tried. I really have. I tried to figure out Scrivener software since other authors swore by how much it helped them. I failed miserably.
I tried Microsoft One Note. I managed to list names of characters in my Calusa Town Tales series. That’s not the same as character profiles. What passes for character profiles are all in my head, not on paper.
As far as setting profiles go, my Tales are set on a fictional island that is based on the real island where I live. I use some of the landmarks but call them by different names. Other landmarks I just make up as I go along.
I’m looking forward to reading how my fellow authors go about this here.
