Over at my writer-friend Erin Shakespeare's blog she asked if anyone ever finds and uses pictures of the characters in their stories. Yes, I've done this before. In fact, I have a few pictures of my characters for one of my stories called "Mystic Mound." I imagine the two main girl characters being a little bit gothic, and the main guy character is Native American. So in case you're interested, this is how I imagine these characters look:
This is my main character, Mindy:
This is Mindy's best friend, Krista:
And this is Damon, one of the main guy characters:
Having these photos helps me to picture the characters and describe them better, although my vision of them isn't exactly like the photos, but close. How about you? Do you have pictures of the characters in your stories?
