techtigger: @LexxClarke too slow on the draw, tex! ๐Ÿ˜‰ #thepennydreadful
LexxClarke: @techtigger shuffering shuckataz! #thepennydreadful
FutureNostalgic: @techtigger So you’re char driven as opposed to world driven? #thepennydreadful
techtigger: backstory is key to world building – world is only as interesting as people in it. otherwise, just pretty scenery! #thepennydreadful
TPDonline: @KatharinaFive see ya! Was great to have you here ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
FutureNostalgic: RT @techtigger: backstory is key 2 world building – world only as interesting as ppl in it. otherwise, just pretty scenery! #thepennydreadful
gstickle: @techtigger It’s nice to hear you start w/character first.I/ve been to workshops where they start w/scene first.Not my style #thepennydreadful
techtigger: @FutureNostalgic for me, characters build the world ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
gstickle: Absolutely @techtigger backstory is key to world building-world is only as interesting as people in it. #thepennydreadful
FutureNostalgic: For me too. ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @techtigger: @FutureNostalgic for me, characters build the world ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
mariblaser: Another frame on wall. RT @techtigger: backstory is key to world building. world is only as interesting as people in #thepennydreadful
mariblaser: Same here. ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @FutureNostalgic: For me too. ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @techtigger: @FutureNostalgic for me, characters build the world ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
gstickle: Action is also key. #thepennydreadful
techtigger: @FutureNostalgic yeah – and I love to give my char’s quirks – nox drinks too much coffee, grimm has a sweet tooth ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
FutureNostalgic: @techtigger In that case I think I’d be Grimm ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, quirks are good – am learning that. #thepennydreadful
gstickle: @techtigger I’m glad you have a website for #thepennydreadful to reference from. #thepennydreadful
techtigger: @gstickle yep, the website is our home, the hashtag is where we gab about it ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
lastsyllable: @techtigger Do you find the quirks surface naturally or do you think “what quirk can I give him”? #thepennydreadful
gstickle: @mariblaser You’re from Italy. How great. I’ve always wanted to visit. My husband lived there for two years. #thepennydreadful
mariblaser: Yup, @techtigger & @CafeNirvana are very professional. ๐Ÿ˜‰ RT @gstickle: I’m glad you have a website for #thepennydreadful to reference from
techtigger: @lastsyllable a little of both – i usually think up some traits/quirks when I first make up character though #thepennydreadful
cafenirvana: @mariblaser I am gonna die laughing now ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @mariblaser: Yup, @techtigger & @CafeNirvana are very professional. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #thepennydreadful
techtigger: @lastsyllable no char. is perfect for me, or entirely good or evil. All have faults, good points. try to make them real #thepennydreadful
gstickle: Hey @cafenirvana nice to visit with you again. #thepennydreadful
mariblaser: But it’s true! I mean it. ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @cafenirvana: @mariblaser I am gonna die laughing now RT @mariblaser: very professional #thepennydreadful
gstickle: @lastsyllable no char. is perfect for me, or entirely good or evil. All have faults, good points. try to make them real #thepennydreadful
techtigger: although, some traits just crop up as characters talk to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Loki wasn’t supposed to be MC, but took center stage anyway #thepennydreadful
techtigger: i sometimes think I am just their mild-mannered script writer ๐Ÿ˜‰ #thepennydreadful
AnneTylerLord: RT @techtigger: Loki wasn’t supposed to be MC, but took center stage anyway #thepennydreadful //Ha! Isn’t that how it goes sometimes?
LexxClarke: @techtigger that’s something I’ve learnt,never tell a char they’re minor cos they get huffy #thepennydreadful
FutureNostalgic: @techtigger I’ve had that happen to me too. #thepennydreadful
techtigger: @mariblaser aww, thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ #thepennydreadful
TPDonline: true! ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @techtigger some traits just crop up as chars talk to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Loki wasn’t s’posed 2b MC, but took centerstage.. #thepennydreadful
lastsyllable: @techtigger Reminds me of the scene from Shakespeare in Love… “What’s the play called?” “Mercutio.” #thepennydreadful
gstickle: So true. @techtigger Some of the characters’s traits jump up and surprise you. #thepennydreadful
