Character Layout Sheet
I created this myself to allow me to make each character different from one another. It will help to ensure that I (and you) don't deviate from what the character would actually do, you stick with their personality and don't change them just for the sack of the story (unless it's a logical change).

I created this checklist back when I was doing a ton of research and actually thought I could edit my book with ease (ha! Yeah right). I still haven't used this checklist myself but plan on doing so as soon as I start line by line editing. I hope you find it useful! I got a lot of my tips to create this list from here. Another tip you can add to this list is to act out the scene you are writing, it will help you not miss important points such as getting gas when a character is driving.
This website was suggested to me by the Kellytown youth writers group! The website link above provides you with not just writing career info but specific college degrees, different paths you can take, how to self publish, what to be wary of, how to get an agent and how to edit with your editing agent. I highly recommend it.
