Character is important to story.

So, so, so important. But many writers treat character development as separate to the plot. Why do that when you can kill two birds with one stone?

This is no normal character profile exercise. It goes deeper to allow you to build a character-driven plot.

How I Developed the Character Profile Exercise

I was working on a resource for developing character, but there’s so many character profile exercises out there. I didn’t want it to be just another one to add to the noise of sub-par resources. 

Later, I was on social media, and I created a poll asking what the number one thing writers struggle with.

More than 40% of the responses said “Plot”

Not character but plot.

And that’s when I realized that maybe I could create a great resource. In my view, the best plots are character-driven, so if someone finds it easier to create a great character, they are only inches away from creating great plot.

That’s what this exercise does.
