Hereís a question for all you writers out there Ė both aspiring and published. How do you keep track of a characterís physical attributes, their quirks and baggage? Their family history?
Iím forever forgetting what color eyes Iíve given my characters and little things like that. Itís becoming even more difficult now that Iím writing book eleven in my Middlemarch Mates series.
So, how do you keep track of your characters? Spreadsheets? Notebooks? File cards? An incredible memory? A software program? How do you do it?
