Sometimes, when I get a bit stuck with my writing, it helps to draw the characters. These are for my current work in progress, which is the sequel to Crooks and Straights. I knew one of my characters had to have an unexpected meeting late at night, but I didn’t know who he would run into. So I started drawing, and these three guys emerged:
I don’t know their names yet – Brendon says the big guy is called “Billy Bong”. All I know is that they are thieves, that the big one is calm and even tempered, the little one is suspicious and has a nasty temper, and the creature is the sensible one of the group.
