I created the character Silly Snake for no other reason than to bring some fun to my stories. Some people may think that I like snakes because Silly Snake is a friendly and outgoing character. However, that is the furthest from the truth. I do not like snakes one single bit.
Snakes, spiders and rats are three creatures I absolutely detest. Maybe, subconsciously, I am trying to get over my fear of snakes by writing about them but I am not even sure about that.
Usually when I create a character I don’t sit and contemplate on the character. I don’t write a lengthy character profile of them. I start writing and the character just flows out as I am writing. The personality of the character develops as I write and the character itself grows with each story I write about them. If I like the character I created, I will use him/her in other stories.
