"The second most-frequent writing request, after books, is for school papers.  We respond to all such queries by refusing to help a student cheat himself (or herself) out of an education."
David Leonhardt of The Happy Guy Marketing, as quoted in Maclean's

Hire a freelance fiction writer here.
Download your free Character Description Cheat Sheet fo Children's Books here.

Welcome children's authors and writers. One of the most important tasks you face as you begin writing a novel for kids (or any other "story") is to define and describe each of your main characters, as well as many supporting characters. The strength of your story rests on the strength of your characters, and how well children will relate to them and visualize them. Children do not always look for the same things as adults, and the character, being often children, need different descriptors than adult characters do. Your story will be only as compelling to your young readers as the characters you develop for them. If you hire a ghost writer, she will put the words down - but even then it helps if you have a strong idea for each character. But where should you start?

Describing your characters the easy way

Fortunately for you, we have put together a "cheat sheet" that you can use to help organize your thoughts and ideas. This will be the ideal tool for anyone...

  • Writing a book proposal.
  • Hiring a ghostwriter to do the actual writing, but wants to make sure the story is his own.
  • On a budget, but needing a ghostwriter to do just the writing (you might not want to pay also for character development).
  • Preparing to write a book for children themselves.

Here is a snapshot of your cheat sheet:

The cheat sheet is free to download, but we do ask you to share the love. Just click "Tweet" below to share with your friends so that they will also know how a children's writer can describe a person's character - then you will have immediate access.

WAIT! What if you want to write another book, not one meant for children. We also offer a Character Description Cheat Sheet for novels and biographies.
