Facing your character(s)…
No, this is not a post about confronting yourself, owning up to your issues, etc…although this is a topic that I have been known to address. And it is one to which I shall undoubtedly return. Today’s post, however, is about an interesting site called Need a Face for that Character?
I tend towards being a very visual person. Thus, even when I am writing, my mind sees first images that capture the essence of my mental and emotional states or thoughts. As such, I find it easier to have a visual of a face or place to help prompt me in my writing. I am an avid user of Google Images, and I must say that it has proved helpful. The Tumblr site Need a Face for that Character?, however, is a wonderful tool when searching for interesting/unique faces to represent characters.
The site is fairly straight-forward to use, allowing for users to search the database using keywords. I am a fan of simply heading straight to the Archives page as it gives an overall visual of all the available faces.
Well, it’s a rather short post today. I hope, however, that you will find it useful for those of you who are either preparing for NaNoWriMo, or already writing stories, or even roleplaying (I think this was the initial intention for the site ;)).
Until Next Time!
