Use this activity to generate characters to use when writing for other topics.

Paste your characters into the Characters page of your Jigsaw. You can re-use a character in many activities, or create fresh people for each topic. You may find that one character interests you more than the rest, and build a whole world around him or her. Or you might find yourself populating a town or landscape with a multitude of different people.

There are many online resources for creating characters – this activity is just a quick-start method.
