Daily Writing Meme: Day Nine

How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

I admit, I'm having trouble understanding this question. I guess maybe because I don't really create my characters they just appear?

Here's how King Christopher and Dafydd came to be. A friend and I were chatting on MSN Messenger. All of a sudden she started telling me a "bedtime story" about a cold and tired king who was seeking shelter in the cottage of a woodsman. It was all very sudden, and the pair fell in love that very night. I couldn't get the idea out of my head, and overnight I began building the universe in my head, and the characters grew and evolved.

As for my contemporary works, I'd rather not say how those characters are created, I'll keep that a dirty little secret.

By the way...please feel free to friend this journal :)
