So, for those of you that have created a character, it’s time to move onto the next stage of our little workshop. What I’d like you to try and do now is build a framework for your character to live in; something a little like this.

 

Building an Online Character

There are places that your character must inhabit; they must have an Email and must be on twitter, but other places such as last.fm, facebook, googlemaps, friendfeed, delicious and all the other things I tend to use, depend on you and your character.

Once you have set up your characters framework let us all know where to find them by popping links into the comments section of this post. I’ll then set something up which will help us all in the next workshop. If you’re having trouble with anything just let me know and I’ll help you out as best I can.

If you want to join in, you can – this is open to everybody, but you should read this first.

  1. It depends Vic. Depends on the character on the story they tell. I normally go for blog and twitter straight from the start but it really does depend on the character. Sometimes you may want to wait before doing video stuff – which is what I did with Jack. It’s actually more important to concentrate on the story and what you want the character to do / be and not necessarily focus purely on popularity – but that does play a role in rolling out the stuff.
