it’s amazing to me how much I’ve learned about my characters through, of all the goddamn things, Pinterest
like sitting there looking at a picture of a cloak going “would my character wear something like this? Yes. Yes they would. Maybe in a darker blue…oh, let’s say blue is their favourite colour, yeah, that makes sense. They might put a pin on it (searches cloak brooches) kind of like this one, but with a cat instead of a dragon, yep, they are definitely a cat person…”
I mean it makes sense if you think about it…what they wear, how they wear it, what they eat, where they live…all those things are integral and intimate parts of your character.
