If you are creating a character for your book or short story, you may want to make a character sheet or bio for them to help move the character's development along.


  1. Get a blank piece of paper or notebook and think about the character. What does he/she look like?
  2. Start by writing down basic information about the character. This should include things like their name, gender, age, personality, and appearance.
  3. Now get into some more details. Add family, friends, pets, and hobbies. If they go to school, add favorite and least favorite subjects, teachers, etc.
  4. To go with the story, add what their challenge is or their part in the book.
  5. Now for the best part. Flesh out your character by giving them likes, dislikes, pet peeves, favorite music, anything you can think of!
  6. Don't be afraid to add too much. You never know when you might need something on the paper.


  • Just have fun with it.
  • If you prefer a more thorough or objective approach, then find a list of character traits and rate each trait based on the character's adherence to it. (Generally applies, sometimes applies, almost never applies, etc.)
  • Be as creative as you want! If you want to go all-out give them a fake email if you can!
  • Add or draw a picture if you can.
  • Base a character off of someone or something. (Great characters sometimes turn out to be different versions of real people. Just don't be creepy with it.)


  • If you do give them an email, don't write the whole thing, just in case.
