Discussion: Character Pictures

Posted by on November 20, 2012 in Discussion Questions | 3 comments

Do you like finding pictures that depict your characters?

Do you tend to find pictures for them before or after you start writing?

What resources do you use to find them?

Which character did you find the most likeness for, and which the least?

Feel free to share links!

    I’ve been told I’m not descriptive enough about my characters; I suppose that is because when writing, I try to look at things through their eyes, not just stand back and watch them. I’m trying to use that by writing what I’m currently working on (The Illumination Query: The Speed of Darkness part 1) http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Speed-of-Darkness-by-Sarah-Baethge/247661878624972 as something of a journal written by my main character.

    I love finding pictures that depict my characters. I tend to find them after I start writing because I feel like I know them better, if that makes sense. I think I found the most likeness in Allison… I think she looks just like Olivia Wilde. Good question!

    After spending an inordinate amount of time in vain pursuit of pictures for my covers, I’ve decided to find the pictures first. It makes it much easier.
