The characters are a main part of the story , as often the story revolves around them , so a lot of attention should be paid to them while writing your short story.  To have a good characters you should use the right techniques to write them … One of the techniques is how can you revel the personality, the description of the character to your reader , now there are many ways in which you can do that, and it depends on your story which way you should use. Here are some few ways which you can make use of to  reveal your character. I hope this might help you in figuring out the right way to reveal your character.

 

You can reveal the personality of your character through these ways :

 

  • What a character says – dialogue

 

Character dialogue can be in either the character speaks to him/herself, or speak  to another character.The words that the character speak also define the personality of the character ,a scientist character will speak differently from what a poor child character might say , and thats what add a style to the dialogue.

 

  • What character does – actions  

 

The character’s actions and behavior throughout the story defines his characteristics, young characters often do reckless deeds , unlike wise old characters , however the actions of the characters and how the character suppose to act in a particular situation depends on the role of the character in your story.

 

  • What a character thinks – thoughts

 

The character’s thoughts often let the reader know the feelings, and intentions of the character and it makes the reader understand more about the personality of the character.

 

  • What others say about the character

 

Here the characteristics of the character are being described by another character inside the story.

 

  • What the author says about the character

 

In this way the characteristics can be described through the Narrator  of the story.
