I’ve talked about this before, but I keep learning new things. #writetip It’s a surprise how important spreadsheets are during the process of writing.
The latest addition to my team of spreadsheets is for characters. I already had one spreadsheet per novel where the character details are kept.
Now, I find I need a new one. The latest spreadsheet keeps track of character details per novel, but in one place. I have several characters who made it into all three novels.
After that length of time, characters gain/lose weight, change their hair, get a new job etc.
As I am editing the last two novels at the same time, I need an aid to tell me what hair cut they have. The spreadsheet five me a quick place to reference this.
