Critiques

Meaningful by SavedArt

This is the first critique I've ever did, but for some reason I felt it was worth doing. Impact. You made one. Definitely. It might not...

Activity


Me: *lounging on a chase in the corner of Akira's office* Akira do you ever regret your creation?

AKira: A little sometimes. *sitting at her desk tapping away at the keys of her computer filling int he character records.* After all I was created based completely of the picture of a character in a game with a story that started out as a copy of a movie with dragons added. It does make you feel rather insignificant and.... not your own person. like you don't really belong.

Me: Do you think you can grow into your own with some work. *sitting up 

Akira: Yes of course. If you’ll help me to.

Me: Well then What do you want your full name to be?

Akira: Akira Takagowa

Me: *chuckle* we don’t know any meanings to that do we?

Akira: Not a damn thing for Takagowa, but Akira means Bright boy

Me: hehe alright then.. how do you pronounce your name?

Akira: Pretty much as it is spelled. There are general nuances within the Japanese language that would give the name a certain sound when spoken. Although for those reading who don't speak Japanese I suppose Ah-keer-ah Ta-kah-gow (Like gown without the n) ah will do.

Me: Alright well any nicknames?

Akira: Some of the clowns in the Writer's wasteland refer to me as Kira. Now that does have a meaning to it. It means killer according to Death note.

Me: And what to you prefer to be called? 

Akira: Akira, but if someone must call me by anything but my first name... Taka

Me: Lion king much? *chuckles*

Akira: No, *rolls her eyes* if they aren't going to refer to me by my first name then they can refer to me by my last and since it is a mouth full Taka will do.

Me: heh okay well next question. Birth date.

Akira: Well that’s an interesting one to discuss. I mean that could very well be one of  many different dates. After all Where shall my origins lie Earth or Atreyu or else where?

Me: hm… that is difficult… I don’t know… I’d originally created you with the idea of bringing fantasy into the real world…. So… maybe… maybe you are to set the bar for another story line all together.

Akira: how so?

Me: Well imagine if all the fantasy creatures were real.

Akira: Interesting.... You're not going to put me back on that Oil rig with that pervert are you?

Me: No! Geez! That whole thing was written in 7th grade for one and two it was an almost word for word copy of Armageddon up until the owner charges into Perv's room.

Akira: Well then what do you have in mind?

Me: Not sure just yet. How about we continue this as an interview and go from there?

Akira: Then I will answer about my birth date. 1998 September 21st. Roughly when I was created which is also where I'd like to be placed in the timeline of this new world.

Me: 17 years you'll be this year then. shit how time has flown. you realize you'll be apart of the Millennials? and that most of my generations pretty much hates you.

Akira: I understand, but don't generations usually hate the generation after them because of some perceived notion that the younger generation has it easy? So no matter what generation you were to place me in, someone would still have an problem with me.

Me: True. So what would that make your astrological sign?

Akira: It would make me a Virgo and I was born in the year of the Tiger.

Me: what are t he odds *chuckles* Alright So I suppose we need to come up with an occupation for you.

Akira: That can be difficult since by all rights I am a minor. I may be proficient as your record keeper here in the wasteland, but not to many 17 year old teens get those kinds of clerical jobs. Were I in Atreyu I'd have been trained in the Colleges of Delain and become a record keeper there.

Me: Well then we need to work our way around the age thing. or I'll just saw screw it and drop you in Atreyu. Hope you don't mind not having indoor plumbing.

Akira: Oh har har no thank you I prefer my toilet flushing thanks. hm.. Perhaps a family business?

Me: Yes! That reminds me of the Facebook page that I follow "The Libertarian homeschooler" The family has their own business and their sons make money like an allowance by helping out with the business. 

Akira: So my parents run a business and I help out with the record keeping. They breed and sell Dragons... Well species that are related to them at least.

Me: I would assume that full size dragons would in fact be restricted. Like most large exotics. Well then we don't have to worry about Rank. Your occupation is Draco breeder with a specialty in the record keeping department. We'll slip back to this subject further in the interview. However we are going to stop here for the moment.

Akira: Why?

Me: I want to give readers a preview of how I run these interviews. It is to go with the character interview sheet.

Akira: Creator... With all due respect, you may be the writer, but I still run the interviews. 

Me: well yes, but they still need to see that. I think thats part of why the Wasteland group didn't go the way I'd hoped. Regardless here is where the interview ends for Part one of your interview. Part 2 will me quite longer as we'll be focusing on Physical Description and possibly Personality.

Akira: I aught to take a personality test. those always have good insight.

Me: then you will. until then I must post this. you keep up on everyone else's records. *gets up and leaves the writer's wasteland*
Interview with Akira Pt. 1
One of several characters that inspired the creation of the character interview, Akira was a character whom I'd created in middle school. I had never gotten around to really fleshing her own and so I started to interview her. This is just one of several methods I use to flesh out the character interview process. I like to run it like a full interview and show their personality. All the other character interviews will be between Akira and the character as she became my character record keeper when I realized I'd left my oldest character in the bin and didn't give her nearly enough attention.

Here is the link to the Character interview sheet so you can interview your own characters. have fun!

Character interview questions
So as a writing prompt I put together a character interview. I started out wanting to perfect my character sheet, but then thought of how interesting it would be to sit down an interview my character. So I searched around for different character development information and worked out a list of questions (which is by no means complete as there is no end to the possible questions that could be asked of a character.) So here it is. My character interview sheet. You can interview your own characters simply by filling in the Answer lines or you could write out the interview in full prose using is sheet as a basis for the questioning. Go nuts! have fun!

Also if you have any questions that you think should be added by all means suggest int he comments with a note of what section the question should be placed in. you will be credited for your additions. 

Note: Not all of these questions will be applicable to all characters (or all worlds they are created for) so just edit as needed for each individual character and this is also where the reader suggestions come in. 

Here are a few of my characters interviews. I will link them as I get done with parts of them.

Caitlen grere by Sethian-Motzart
Caitlen grere
She's one of my older characters and one I love to torment. I once took a mary sue test for her and actually managed to break even with her even though her life is utter misery. My wife and I love to take our characters and put them in different life situations so their life's timelines are never settled. well Caitlen here has had a time of it. She's been abused, battered, killed, attacked, suffered miscarriage after miscarriage and almost never settled with a fully happy life. She's also a Thierenthrope (Think Lycanthrope, but with any animal) I've never decided what animal she takes the form of. Even though I torment her she is one of my favored characters and has quite a maternal instinct and is an excellent cook. Excellent to the point of being a Chef for the most important family in Kingston glade.

Wow... Long time since I've been in here! Got to get back into it. Parenthood is upon me though so even though I have inspiration it will be slow going. I've got the most perfect little guy around though to help and hinder me lol!
Ever wonder what your character does when you stop writing for the day? Ever wonder what they would have to say to you about the hell you put them through? ever wonder what your characters reaction would be to meeting the character of another writer? Well here is where you can see. Come along one and all and invite your friends. hell invite your enemies. Hell invite any writer who is curious!

It's nothing much right now. Just something to jump start my reconnection with an old friend. Though As I have time I may well add more.

  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Listening to: silence
  • Reading: urban farm magazine
  • Watching: computer screen
  • Playing: at writing
