Could you maybe review the charahub profile of the MC of my novel? I want to make sure she’s well developed and a good character before I go any further with the book. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! You guys rock!

We do our best! I’ll be taking this one!

Now, as an older sister myself, after reading the very first segment, I think you might need to do some research into sibling dynamics. It is most usually the case that younger siblings will be the ones who feel overshadowed by their older siblings, because the older one was there “first” and everyone compares the siblings that came after to the eldest. I’m not saying that it can’t happen or be written the other way around, just that you’ll need to go out of your way to display the methods and means by which the younger sister is overshadowing the elder, or the ways in which the elder sister perceives herself being overshadowed. Try to find stories from people who are older siblings and stories from people who are younger siblings, and consider the way they relate to each other. If Piper is jealous of Aurora in some regards, are there also things Aurora finds admirable about Piper? Does Piper know that?

What puts Piper into the position of “supporting” instead of “acting”? If she resents this so much, why doesn’t she do something to change it? Don’t make your protagonist passive - give her something to do! Even if you show her trying to change her role and failing at it, at least she’s doing something. Trying is far better than complaining about it and being bitter towards her sister (who she supposedly loves more than anyone else; there are a lot of conflicting emotions here and you’ll need to explore them thoroughly).

I’m also not sure how Aurora, the younger princess, is the Crown Princess, so I hope that that’s thoroughly explained in your story.

There actually isn’t enough information in this profile for me to tell you one way or another whether Piper is a well-developed or good character. Even looking at the questions you’ve answered tells me very little about the type of person that she is; most of her profile tells me more about Aurora than it does about Piper! I strongly suggest checking out the Princess Tropes page and skimming over some of those entries for ideas on what to do (and what not to do) with princesses; I further suggest checking out the Sibling Tropes index. Add more details to her profile (I always advocate very thorough physical descriptions of characters and explaining their personalities in context; see this post) and fill out her relationships to people who aren’t Aurora a little bit more (I have no idea why she loves Damien, how she feels about Jack, or what her relationship to the priest is, but they’re all mentioned; see this post).

If you’d like to resubmit Piper after further development, I’d be happy to have another look at her. I hope that helps! Good luck!

This is so cool! I love this!

ssssssi:

I don’t know if anyone even looks through charahub tag but

would anyone like to give me free referral… I’m running out of space and I have too many ocs orz and I’m a poor college art student to buy a subscription..

(and if anyone does have a charahub, let me know yo! and if you don’t know what charahub is.. it’s a website solely for organizing your ocs, and it’s rlly good! so look that up.)

Hmm!! Maybe we can crowdsource this!

We should obviously turn to the awesome community before we search elsewhere, because you guys know Charahub better than anyone. 

We’re looking for an awesome web designer who can help decide on the future of Charahub visually! 

If this is you, email us (support@charahub.com) and lets have a chat. This is a paying job!

right-up-and-ikemen asked: When CH 2.0 is released, will there be a mobile version or apps for Apple and Android? It's currently difficult to work with it on mobile right now, and with NaNoWriMo coming up soon, I need Charahub if I'm going to get anything done. Such a good site, though. Keep working at it!

For version Charahub 2 we’re using an awesome framework called Meteor, which will soon allow us to deploy to mobile as well as making a web version of the app.

Our initial design of Charahub was to be very mobile friendly but unfortunately that didn’t quite pan out the way we expected, but mobile is very important to us and key to the next version of Charahub!

is-the-killer asked: So... How's work on 2.0?

It’s coming along.

Like I’ve said before - both Gemma and I have other jobs that are pretty demanding, and since Charahub doesn’t make any money we don’t really have the ability to sit down and dedicate ourselves to it. 

I’m considering doing a kickstarter or a gofundme or something to raise the necessary funds to get people on it full time, but that’d be around $15,000 and I just don’t know if we’d be able to raise it. What do you think?

dites-bonjour-au-ciel:

Charahub is really good!  Like really good.

I’ve just got through making a profile for one of my characters (there’s room, as you’ll either know already through using it or find out by clicking through the link, for 100 to start with).  I chose to begin with my Medieval hero, Caelan Galbraith.  I don’t if you’ll be able to see him, because I’ve set it to hidden except from those I share the link with.  So, you might be able to see him, but then again you might not.  I chose to keep him hidden on the site, because I want my characters to remain out of the public eye as much as possible.  This is because I hope to get some of these stories published one day, and it’d kind of ruin them [in my opinion, at least] by parading the characters & their intricacies all over the internet!

Anyway, Charahub is really, really good!  It allows you to go so in-depth with the characters.  It makes you think about things you might have overlooked, although my main characters are often plotted right down to the smallest possible detail.  So, Caelan was easy for me to write into the portfolio on Charahub, but some of his counterparts from the same universe might not be so easy, like his sworn enemy (keep an eye out on Caelan’s questions section to learn who that is).

If you’re a writer, or RPer with loads of OCs, then this site will definitely help you keep track of all those pesky little characters (and the major ones) that keep setting up camp in your head.
