Character Development

I find developing a character very much like tending a garden. Give them the attention they need and they’ll bloom for you – both of them. 🙂

To sketch out their bones put them in an environment that will inspire growth.


Tend to the needs their past may have inflicted. Add a little TLC and something to grow on. Nurture them until they burst into life.














Of course, if you’re really lucky, someone else could tend your garden…









But then it wouldn’t be yours, would it?

    Hi Eleni! Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

    Thank you. The wisteria and the rose are from our garden the other is from Floriade. I used to go every year when we lived in Canberra – so you can imagine the number of pictures I have!

    And the satisfaction of knowing you’ve done it all yourself is immense!

    So true, Helene. 🙂 And the source of inspiration is never-ending, even if it’s only to filter out the ‘white noise’ of life so you can get back into the creative mood.
