I’m working on my first urban fantasy. I’m not sure how I ended up in this genre, but here I am. Anyway, I’m finally getting a feel for my hero and heroine. I know why they act the way they do and say the things they say. But I have no idea what they look like.
Normally, I have a vague idea of my main characters’ appearance. Either a real live person has inspired the character or I’ve written the character and later discover a real live person who fits perfect or just enough to help me visual scenes as I write/edit.
So how soon do you know what your characters look like? Do you need to know what your characters look like before you start writing their story?
Feel free to share the inspirations for your characters.
