Altering Character Profile Template

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?

That’s what the template system is designed for. :slight_smile: Chances are, there will be more than just one thing you want to change about it over time, so having your own starter that does everything the way you want it to seems like the perfect solution to me.
