Fairytale Themed Writing Prompt 7: Character Building

Character Building

Developing a believable character can be a tricky thing to get right. Characters need to have motivations which inform their actions. Developing a character makes sure they feel like flesh and blood to the reader, while a poorly written character will fall flat.

Prompt: Retell Beauty and the Beast as two separate personalities competing within the same character. Be sure to give them distinct interests and motivations. You could even have them communicate verbally and non-verbally with differing mannerisms.
