Re: Assigning Birthdays to Your Characters

lol, I don't give my characters birthdays. I've been writing most short stories though, so that may be why. The novel I'm working on does have one character celebrate a birthday in it. Well, I guess they don't really celebrate, since I write horror

I don't think I've had a character actually celebrate a birthday, although I like to know when their birthdays are so I can keep track of their ages.

Can't Zombies celebrate a birthday?

Re: Assigning Birthdays to Your Characters

I like to assign my birthdays to my characters because I think its fun to have those little details, even if they're never described as really celebrating their birthday.
Usually I use birthdays of my family members and friends. The main character (or my favorite character) usually gets my own birthday.
The only thing I'm specific about is the year of birth (at least for the MC) because it is relevant to my story.
I never thought of choosing birthdays based on astrological signs but that sounds pretty cool too.
