“The sisters and brothers that you meet give you the materials which your character uses to build itself. It is said that some people are born great, others achieve it, some have it thrust upon them. In truth, the ways in which your character is built have to do with all three of those. Those around you, those you choose, and those who choose you.”  

~ Maya Angelou

We all have people who have shaped and molded our lives through their thoughts, words and deeds.  For good or bad they have left a lasting impression.  

Create a character based on the qualities of four impressionable people from your life. They can be people from your past or your present. You can focus on their positive or negative characteristics but try to capture their memorable qualities. Reflect, write and most of all, have fun! 😉
