As a writer and a roleplayer, one of the most disturbing things I’ve encountered is other writers who don’t feel that establishing the history for their characters is important.
For me, personally, I feel that history is the single most important aspect of character development. Even more important than personality. Because it’s from that character’s history that every aspect of who they are develops - Their beliefs, their values, their goals in life, their hobbies and interests, how they interact with others, etc. History is the road that paves our future - it’s from our past experiences that we make our future choices. Change one aspect of the past, and it could potentially change everything about who that character is and what they stand for.
This is why lazy and/or non-existent histories concern me so much. I feel that it robs the character of… well, character.
Every single one of my characters has a full history, family lineage, and more. You’re right, history means just as much if not more that personality, because history SHAPES personality. My characters have grown and changed over the years severely, many aren’t anything like they first were, and that’s because of hos deeply their histories have affected them.
mmm... If I was to compare you to any disney character I would say E.V.A., reason? well you are focused when want to but know when to fun, at times you are too serious when there is a task at hand, dependable and easy to go on "man mode" (thats how I know it dun judge) and have a proficiency by your creators to shoot at things first (you know what I mean) also you have a loveable goof with a heart of gold and the wits of a lil child for husband so... yeah.
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
