A Writer’s Character Sheet Template

I recently updated my Scrivener to version 024, which included templates, and decided I needed to create my own character sheet template.  I searched the Internet using my favorite search engine Bing.com and found about 3 helpful sites relating to character templates.  I’ve listed these reference sites below and I appreciate their knowledge on this topic. Italics is used to represent sample data or to provide input details.  Click here for the actual Scrivener Character Sheet for download CharacterSheet.docx (18.81 kb).   <Character’s Full Name>  Nick Name(s):   Gender: Male Age:   Birthday/Year: 10.3323 Marital Status: Single Spouse:           Language(s):   Place of Birth: Planet Barenth Friends/Allies:   Enemies:   Beliefs/Religion:   Career/Past Careers:           Appearance Hair Type: Wavy Eyes:   Hair Color:   Sight: Glasses Skin Color: Dark Brown Complexion/Facial Hair: Full Beard Height:   Weight:   Physical Faults/Tattoos: Scar above left eye.
