5 Tips For Writing Better Characters (https://goo.gl/q15EDK)

When you’re writing a screenplay, all of the elements need to come together in harmony. The one thing that can easily make or break a screenplay is your characters.

Here are 5 tips for writing better characters.

  1. Make your protagonist likable right away. If you want your audience to root for your main character, you need to give them a reason to like them early on. This is gravely important because without someone to root for, your story has nothing going for it.
  2. Be realistic and detailed. The details surrounding your character should all reflect who they are in a realistic way, from the car they drive to how they drink their coffee.
  3. Allow your story to unfold naturally. You should go into the writing process with a story outline, but allow yourself some breathing room to let the character drive the story.
  4. Gift your character with compelling dialogue. Every character in your screenplay should have compelling and interesting dialogue. Dialogue can tell us who a character is, where they’re from, how educated they are, and more.
  5. Think like an actor. Actors talk about needing a point of view, so give that to them through their character.
