Create Trading Cards For Your Fictional Characters:
How do you keep your characters physical traits and bios straight ? I have tried so many different ways and have found many that I like and that work for me. I have tried keeping photos and magazine cutouts in a binder located next to each character's photo. I sometimes use a pinup board and place photos next to index cards that give descriptions of each character.
While writing my last blog post about character sketches using worksheets or templates I remembered a web-site that I stumbled upon about a year ago that had a great idea about making character trading card-like baseball trading cards. I searched the web today trying to find the site again and after a long search I found it. Lynn Viehl, a published author posted an article about creating character cards a while ago on her blog, Here . I liked the idea then and I love it now.
I made these really fast at the site I discovered from the pbackwriter. It was really easy and a lot of fun. You should try it. Create your own character card
I looked around for other sites that offer the same and found a few, but none that I like nearly as much and none that allowed me to include nearly as much detail on the card. Here is what I found.
Have you ever considered making character cards? If you have made them or know of any other web-sited where you can easily create your own trading cards for characters, please share.
