//I commend you for RPing an OC. It takes a different kind of courage to do so because you’re faced with a different kind of challenge. That is, convincing other’s that your OC is a well-thought-out, multi-dimensional character, where as a CC has already been developed for you and already has a following.
My one attempt to RP as an OC was a weak one at best. A few days into it, I realized if I was going to continue RPing as her, I needed to develop her character more or just quit. I took the second route because I didn’t feel I had time to run two RP blogs.
Other than what can already be found on my blog, my advice to you would be to spend a fair amount time developing your character before initiating roleplaying. Probably a week of just developing your OC would be good. You can develop the character more as you RP (you can learn a lot about your character this way), but you’ll want to have a solid starting point.
Hopefully, once you have done this, you’ll have a good amount of material to work with and can share with others. Creat an “about the muse” page where people can learn about your OC. It might be good to withhold certain things about your OC until a later time. There’s a certain attractiveness towards a closed-book policy, revealing more about the character as time progresses. Sometimes, revealing something about your OC at the right moment can keep things fun and interesting. Keep in mind though, you don’t want to hold back too much info about your OC unless that’s how you want to play the game. Also, your OC can have the character trait of being an open book while you yourself are not being an open book about your OC.
I hope this is useful to you.
