I'm going to be absolutely honest with you, man. Stop reading those books and looking on Wikipedia for 'moral codes'. Pick a person you know (yourself maybe) and base your character on that. Adjust if need be. If I had to give you one piece of advice in terms of the whole piece, it would be to look from the inside out and not from the outside in.Hello the TheMightyaz.
I do get the cat phobia example and asking why is important to get to know the character which you pointed out. I might be using a slightly different approach. For example I have researched character moral codes. Moral codes can be researched on wikipedia. I think I will plan my character. I understand it is a bit of both. I haven't seen many discussions on character planning. Moral codes apply to psychology. I build a list of facts but understand asking why will help. Or the backstory in this instance. I have decided to wait on a discussion on character planning! I don't feel motivated to do so yet when I need to focus on sentence structure maybe the most. That will make my words flow much better. That way I can know when it is incorrect.
I do know the outline will change When I want to write this story.
When they get issues resolved I will want to start the thread. Thanks for answering and as always . I also liked the background on Fiddlesticks. That is a good example.
I appreciated you answering my questions.
