Workshop: Characters
Okay, so first off this is freaking long And I know I say it everytime, but I really tried to keep it short! So bear with me please! Second.

Workshop: Outlining and Premise
Workshop: Outlining and Premise for my Novel which is Nameless at the moment!
Your First Task
Plot premises are very important, not just so you can relate the story concept to your reader, but also, so you know what each path each character is going to take in their journey. You'll start off by making a list of your characters (protagonist, antagonist and supporting characters) and then create a plot premise for each character. Once you've done that, it should be easy to create the plot premise for your novel. (I can only hope so right? XD)

Plot Premises
Protagonists
Sheridan: Is a sixteen year old slave who lives in a city called Tarsem. (Beginning) One day she is discovered stealing and is sold as part of an compensation contract between her master and a man of higher status from the capital city. (Inciting Incident) In reaction, Sheridan attempts escape deciding that she will have her free

Workshop Prepwork Timeline
Alright, haha, so I also did this in the original post for JosephBlakeParker and of course I did it as ReishaTerrin and you can find it here. Not much has changed… well, no, that's not true things are always changing because this is part of my world building stage. I didn’t post the timeline before because of the format and there’s a bit much and it can get confusing. It’s still confusing, but a little more organized. This is a work-in-progress…
So to begin, the timeline in my story centers around a fictitious world—I’d like to have as High-fantasy, but I’m not opposed to the idea of having some science fiction elements to it if i can make it work— So really my time-line begins with a dying world. In this dying world, Humanity is nearly gone, the world/planet has suffered greatly of e

My Intorduction: 


My name I suppose is the first place any intorduction begins...

So hello. My name is Mystie Merys, though I go by ReishaTerrin and SheridanLightrose <--- though this name I plan to change in the near future. Why do I want to be a writer? I love to write and express myself. A while back JoesphBlakeParker had an excercise that had a similar question so it's been awhile but you can find it here ACWAN 1.1, I can't say to much has changed about why I want to write. I still want to be a writer who brings intense emotion to my readers. I want to pull them into a fictional world of wonder and adventure and I want to introduce them to characters that they can look up to, or learn from and even relate to on some level. I want

Karkadann's Chaos
Eastern Desert- Karkadann.
53 miles from the border of Coritrya.
Lord of the deserts Domain
February 16, year X516
The sun hung high overhead, bearing down with the sweltering heat of the mid-summer afternoon, worsened by the humid air that dragged past like a wet, cloying blanket. It was a vicious cycle that ceaselessly struck the terrain and the voyagers that marched below.
They broke camp and set fourth at daybreak, fifty in all, and General Jonathan Reynes leading them. It was an exceedingly slow day for the General. He had known that it would be. While his soldiers were fast and had incredible endurance, those traveling among them were civilians; men, women and children, many of who had never traveled longer then a day. And having had spent three passing through Karkadann, it proved to be far too long a ride, even if it had been peaceful with few incidents along the way.
They were venturing toward Coritrya; a small prospering village just on the other side of the bar

A Writer's Guide: Naming Characters
When it comes to writing novels, names often get overlooked in the grand scheme of things. Most of us are happy if we can tell who is talking and we can remember the character’s names for the entirety of the book, but bad names can ruin a book. I don’t know about you, but when I get a hold of a book where the main character’s name is a comical 20-character tangle I can’t pronounce, it ruins the book for me. It’s hard to take a book, or a character, seriously when you want to roll your eyes every time you read the narrative.
In this article I’ve compiled a list of things to consider when naming a character for a novel, and though it’s pretty simple, I hope it serves to help someone in their future endeavors to name a character. Most of this is common sense, but it’s often easy to forget these little tidbits of wisdom when you’re busy trying to figure out if your character makes a better Ashley or a Paige.

Task #2
 
Sheridan
 
Tip 1
  • She’s uninhibited and unlike the other standard slaves, those who were taken or sold from/by their families. 
  • She’s adventurous, brave and curious about things a slave shouldn’t be.
  • She also doesn't have that feeling of abandonment or longing to know about her birth or family. 
  • She moves forward not back. 
  • She is also very determined in what she wants. 
  • At the same time she’s naïve because she’s lived a confined life inside city walls. 
  • She's compassionate and cares about people and because she’s a slave she’s taught herself how to adjust to situations for her survival. 
  • An idea I have for her personality, since I already what her different the standard slave, is to have a little fight? 
  • She has little mouth filtering, often speaks her mind, and covers it up with sarcasm. This is bad… because well… she’s a slave. Lol. 
  • Another idea is how I want her to struggle. Emotionally or mentally for certain decisions.
  • Sheridan will have to learn, that what she wants or wants to do and what does or will do, have different consequences and will affect her differently. 
Tip 2

  • Sheridan, I’d have to say is compassionate side of me. Or at least what I think is that part of myself since people have different definition of Compassion. 
  • She's the part of me that hates certain kinds of change. More so when I have no control over it. I’ll adjust, but I won’t like it until it becomes the new routine for me. 
  • She’s also the part of me that likes to improve (and has so much more room for improvement) for learning skills. 

Tip 3

  • Sheridan is way more adventurous and active then am.
  • She’s younger and at the age she, despite all that has happened and is happening to her she is emotionally stronger than I was at her age. 
  • She has more belief in herself then I do often.
  • A lot more open with letting people in than I am. 

Tip 5: 
What Sheridan wants more than anything is freedom. She wants to be her own person, free to live her life as she want and not what some master demands of her. She’ll go through anything to get that even if it's illegal.

Tip 6
  • Sheridan is naïve and rather trusting.
  • Sheridan has a short temper and is prone to outbursts of anger and violence. (more behind the scenes because she could never get away with that in front of a master.)
  • She has a nasty habit of poking her nose where it does not belong,
  • As a physical and emotional flaw/weakness, Sheridan is solitary claustrophobic. Years of abuse from forms of punishment have made her this way. She’s uncomfortable being inside.
  • Sheridan can’t swim. Stems from more years of abuse.
  • She acts rather than think.
  • She’s quick to start or rise to a challenge. (this is more so after arriving to the capitol.)
  • She’s Impulsive.
  • She’s impatient and can be demanding. This leads to poor judgement.
  • An open book? (lol) I suppose in the sense she has a hard time hiding her feelings…
  • No attributes of a leader. Sheridan is not what you would think to be someone of a leader type. Something she’ll learn to become.
 
Tip 7: Well the Antagonist for one? Evangeline, will manipulate a lot of my Protagonist’s flaws. Someone able to get under her skin and play with her emotions or throw her into a situation that exploit her fears such as her not being able to swim or dislike/fear of being in an enclosed space alone.
 
Camielia Brenner. (Secondary Protagonist)

Tip 1
  • Camielia is a very educated a determined girl at her age.
  • She’s both patient and Impatient; patient in having to deal with people because she’s had to deal with her father and a lot of hate and discrimination to their family since his downfall, but she’s impatient because she doesn’t like to do things, such as a task or mundane job, more than once. and rather get things right the first time. 
  • She’s emotionally strong because she takes care of her ill mother.
  • She’s compassionate, kind and loyal.
 
Tip 2
  • I can’t really say she has much from me. Aside from the determination of getting something she wants, goal wise. 
  • Camielia is stubborn probably could get that from me.
  • She doesn’t like unnecessary conflict.
  • Like me, she rather get things right the first time, or she focuses too much time in one area. (like me with writing)  
  • Even if she’s been emotionally hurt she not the kind of person who'll wish ill on anyone.
Tip 3
  • Camielia puts a bigger amount of effort she into EVERYTHING she does whereas I focus everything on one thing at a time or I’m overwhelmed. (hence why i’m so behind in these exercises. lol.)
  • She has a stronger sense of justice and believes there is a way that any problem can be solved peacefully. I’m a little more skeptical in that kind of thinking. 
  • She’s a lot smarter than I am.
  • Tip 5: Camielia Brenner wants to restore her family name/honor and become a Divine Knight. It’s one of the highest ranks in knighthood and only those worthy are chosen. Her father and mother were once Divine Knights and since the downfall of her father's situation and the illness of her mother, they’ve had to suffer. She feels it’s her fault and duty to restore their name. 
  • Tip 6: 
  • The thought she could fail her family and not be strong enough to restore their name is an emotional struggle and flaw in herself.
  • She has a phobia of Spiders. 

Tip 7: I’m not really sure yet…
 
Finnick Rumm (Secondary Protagonist)
 
Tip 1 
  • He’s very competent in his work and sees everything through.
  • Sociable and chatty. There isn’t many people who don’t know him which goes well for him and his need to collect information.
  • He’s intelligent and calculating when the situation called need of it.
  • He’s a good-hearted kind of guy, in the way tries to mean well for others.
  • He’s an excellent liar and full of deceit. (how much of the above is his true to him?~) 
Tip 2 
  • Haha! Not me!!! BAWAHAHA! Finnick comes from the inspiration of my brother-in-law. Right down to the cowboy boots and hat. So a lot of the above part can be placed here. 
  • They're the same in the hard working and getting the job done.
  • Both are extremely easy to get along with. 
  • Cheerful. 
  • Charming. 
  • Can be very forgiving if he believes the person is deserving of a second chance. 
Tip 3
  • Finn differs from my brother-in-law is a way that Finn has less people he can count on. He knows many people yes, but he has a trust issue. My brother-in-law is too trusting to people. 
  • Finn also knows the limits of his body. My brother-in-law will accidently run himself over with his truck and still try to go to work. (True story I swear! His hand is still messed up.)
  • He’s a more outgoing, daring, and sarcastic type of person in his profession then my brother-in-law can afford to be. 
  • Finn can be cruel in dealing with people he doesn’t like. Whereas my brother-in-law prefers sucking it up and dealing.
  • My brother in law is a terrible liar. 
 
Tip 5: Cliche as is sounds, Finn’s origin or goal sparks from revenge against a warlock's keep, his home what the warlocks did to his father and let happen to his sister. Finn wants to destroy the core of their influence and power which leads into the Antagonist and her twisted goals. This is a darkness to him where he’ll achieve his goal even if means forcing connections with people and using them.

Tip 6
  • Fear of red-headed women. They have alway brought him bad luck, and he's superstitious of them. So more like a flaw in himself. 
  • Finn is a huge a womanizer, wasting no time in pursuing all kinds of women. Many fall to his charms, leaving a string of heartache behind wherever he goes, and trouble where he doesn’t need it.
  • A physical weakness of his is his fear of heights.
  • Finn has a hard time accepting what he is, who he is, and where he places himself in the world. He fears what others will think when they see the real him. So he hides behind gambling, and his flirtation with women and being sarcastic.
Tip 7: Hmmmm…. Still a working progress.
 
Lillianne Clearwater (Secondary Protagonist)
 

Tip 1
  • Lillianne is determined, dependable, and intelligent. 
  • She contemplates and questions things before acting. 
  • She'll make impulsive decisions if the situation calls.
  • She’s selfless, caring, loyal and believes everyone should be heard.
  • She has a maternal instinct (a reason she wants to be a healer) and scolds on people about their behavior. 
  • She is, however, naïve and can display poor judgment.
  • With the heart of a healer, she’s determined to save everyone's lives, deserving or not. So she doesn’t have it in her to kill anyone. So she’s not one for causing harm to anyone.  
  • She has a maturity and wisdom beyond her age. 
 
Tip 2
  • Lillianne comes from a part of me that doesn’t like conflict and the part of me that over thinks things when I need to decide something. Because I want to make the right decision and don’t want to do it again. Lol.
  • I’ve been told I have a maternal side. I grew up in a foster home, so I’d often taken care of the younger children. So I can see that?

Tip 3

  • Lillianne has more hope in a situation even when it’s hopeless.
  • Like the last couple Characters. Lillianne is way smarter. 
  • She has more patience with people then I do. If someone yells at me I’m known to to speak back how I feel and where they can...stick it. (even if I don’t like conflict, I will not take crap from others.)
  • Tip 5: Lillianne wants to be a healer, like her mother. After an incident, during which her mother was killed trying to save the injured, Lillianne failed to save her mother's life and felt she wasn’t a good enough healer. So she’s spent a lot of her time studying and training. Until Finnick Rumm appears needing her.

Tip 6
  • She fears witnessing someone she loves die again as she did her mother and not being able to save them. So she believes anyone can be saved whether it's from an injury or from themselves.
 
Tip 7: Someone who can easily twist her beliefs and what she wants to achieve in herself.

Task #4

This one was hard. Because I had way too many character at close relations/knowing of each other from my supporting characters so I had to change things around. Originally, I wanted to make it like a Games of Thrones thing? Where a lot of the cast meet/know each other; Examples- Catelyn stark and Petyr Baelish. Arya Stark and Joffrey Baratheon. Whose meeting and relationships are established earlier on or before the book begins. As compared to Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen who meet much later on and have a relationship that is shocking.  

 
So a lot of my character already know each other, or have history only to later spread out and flourishes. This will change when I get more of my cast developed. (Note: areas with one bulleted point means it's to be further established on later.)

Task #5

Workshop: Characters
Ugh... I finally finished it! Took Way too long, but i finished it!! *flails*

Note: I actually forgot about Barold in doing this till it was too late... Oops...
Loading...

Workshop: Outlining and Premise for my Novel which is Nameless at the moment!

Your First Task
Plot premises are very important, not just so you can relate the story concept to your reader, but also, so you know what each path each character is going to take in their journey. You'll start off by making a list of your characters (protagonist, antagonist and supporting characters) and then create a plot premise for each character. Once you've done that, it should be easy to create the plot premise for your novel. (I can only hope so right? XD)


Plot Premises


Protagonists

Sheridan: Is a sixteen year old slave who lives in a city called Tarsem. (Beginning) One day she is discovered stealing and is sold as part of an compensation contract between her master and a man of higher status from the capital city. (Inciting Incident) In reaction, Sheridan attempts escape deciding that she will have her freedom (First Turning Point). However, Sheridan’s efforts were impeded by being captured by a mysterious man, taken to meet her estranged aunt and forced into the chaotic mess that is an enemy named Evangeline (Antagonistic Force (s) ) ← Don’t know if it did that one right but… we’ll see?


Camielia Brenner: Is a sixteen year old Squire training to become a Divine Knight who lives in a boring humdrum cozy little village. (Beginning). One day a letter of summons arrives asking her father's service. (Inciting Incident). Camielia takes on her father's summons and finds herself hired, escorting Sheridan safely to the kingdom’s capital. (First Turning Point). However, as she tries complete her mission Camielia’s mission is impeded by the same forces Sheridan faces. (Antagonistic Force).


Finnick Rumm: Is an eighteen year old (cowboy at heart) Phantom Warlock and lived in a Warlock's keep training most of his life. (Prologue). Until, one day he discovers the truth about the Keeps darkest secret, the name of an enemy who is the rising center of everyone's problem and the betrayal of his father. (Inciting Incident). In reaction, Finnick decides to leave Warlocks Keep vowing to destroy this enemy. (First Turning Point). However, Finnick's efforts are impeded lack of information and his crossings with Sheridan and Camielia. (Antagonistic Force)


Lillianne Clearwater: Is an eighteen year old healer who long ago made a decision to become a doctor/healer like her late mother. She lives in the City of Scholars, Nelius. (Prologue). One Finnick Rumm, Camielia Brenner and girl named Sheridan arrive with a proposition of saving the life of Sheridan’s mistress. (Inciting Incident). In reaction and eager to test her skills a knowledge Lillianne decides to travel back with the group.(First Turning Point). However, Lillianne's learns that world isn’t contained in the ideals she was raised to believe and there is more than just Black and White. (Antagonistic Force). (Lillianne is a little different, her story and part of the journey doesn't fully set off until Finn, Camie and Sheri travel to meet her.)


Antagonists

Evangeline Crowe: is an Antagonistic woman who has been plotting for years to resurrect some a dark evil but hasn’t had the means or resources to carry out her plans for 16 years. She has long since lived somewhere in secret. (Beginning). She discovers part of an ‘ingredient’ needed for the ritual she needs to perform comes in the form of the Protagonist. (Inciting Incident: I think?). Evangeline decides to manipulate several events that involve the meeting of Sheridan and a woman named Liza (First Turning Point). However, Evangeline's plans efforts were impeded by Sheridan’s snooping around into who she is too soon. (Antagonistic Force).

Supporting Characters

I have a lot of supporting characters and even a few other antagonist characters and other characters as well that make this story more… worldly. But the truth here is I didn’t know how to fill out their permise, because I’m still character building and learning about each of them and trying to figure out how they fit into my outline and world and the adventure. I have a long list of names, race wise, and when I plan on having them make an appearance but… not enough to figure out their Inciting incident or First turning points yet. and what drives them if they’re not just the additional filler characters…. Soooo… yea….

Your Second Task
We're going to start easy. We want you to create a Twelve Point Outline, details can be found here, for your novel.  Overly detailed isn't necessary right now.  We'll get into that later.  Instead, we're looking for the basic points of the story that create your arc.
