Writing Meme: Day 5- Age of Characters

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest?

Hmm…if you want to count my earlier works (which shall never see the light of day since they’ve long been mercifully destroyed), my youngest characters were roughly 12 to 15 years of age.

In PORTRAITS, my youngest character is Anne, the 19 year-old protagonist.  The oldest are Mr. Raferat and Mrs. Brent- two eccentric Occultists in their sixties.  Had a total blast writing them.

The average age of my characters in my current WIPs are in their thirties.

What’s the average age of your characters?  Do you prefer writing about children, young adults, or grownups?  Or does it simply depend  on the particular  story?

  1. Hmmm, I’ve never really pinned down characters’ ages. Mostly it’s sort of a rough approximation of what decade they’re in (20s, 30s, etc.). Of course with the vampires, all bets are off anyway 😉

  2. Heh. Those never-aging vamps. 🙂
