This week I've been working on character sheets for the main characters in my NaNoWriMo novel in preparation for the November challenge.

I'm hoping that having a file on hand with all their basic details will help make writing the novel easier. 

Creating character sheets is definitely a good way to get to know your characters a bit. I didn't want to overload them though. I'd found numerous examples on the internet but they all seemed like too much. Maybe it's just me but I like my characters to surprise me along the way too. It makes writing the story more fun, and helps give it that natural flow. 

I decided the best thing to do was to make my own character sheets with just enough information. All the basic, important stuff, without going over board. The file is in fact only 2 pages long. 

As you guys are fab enough to follow me here, I've decided to share my character sheet with you... for FREE so you can use it too. 

If you find it useful, please send others here so they can grab a copy too. I've even made a click to tweet to make sharing super easy:

Do you prefer basic character sheets like this one, or more detailed ones? Or do you just like your characters to build themselves as you go along?
