I have character “interview” questions that I like to use in place of the “background, internal motivation, external motivations” part of the character profile template.
At the moment, I keep the questionnaire in a Textedit file, and cut-and-paste it into the character profile template that comes in the novel writing template. This work just fine, but I’m wondering if there is a way to permanently modify the character template so that every time I start a new project, my preferred character sketch template is already in place.
The only way I can see to do it at the moment is to create a whole new novel template with my preferred character sketch added in, but that seems like overkill. Any suggestions?
