In Conclusion
Pay attention to motivations, goals, flaws, and bonds from real life. Steal snippets from various inspirations. Draw guidance from existing characters, but donít copy them. Challenge yourself to use very normal themes and humble beginnings. Stretch yourself further, let yourself be inspired. And the best part is that the more you do it, the better youíll get at it. It will always be hard. But as we all know, facing challenges is the only way we level up!
