Charahub: A cloud to store your original characters!

Lately, I've been thinking about writing a new book because Mermaid Tears is taking way too long and will still need to be completed. However, I've wanted to just write a short book - well, short compared to Mermaid Tears, at least - but the title is secret for right now.

You'll see it once I start posting excerpts of the story. Anyway, that's not I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about another writing tool that would be useful for not just writers but artists as well!

It's a website called CharaHub! This is how they would describe their site:

Picture this. You're putting the finishing touches on your latest character, titled "Argus" - the quirky-humoured, happy-go-lucky peacock. 
He's almost done. You just need to find that picture of the ideal beak for him you had on screen 20 minutes ago. After surfing through a good twenty tabs, the only thing you're closer to is a migraine and a meltdown. 
Charahub exists to keep everything about the character in one easy-to-use and shareable place. This could include anything from character description (little body, big beak), personality traits (that mischevious scamp!), or even visual and text influences to refer back to later.
According to them, they call themselves the perfect writer's tools:
Okay, so you could go as far as to say that Charahub is the perfect writer's tool, right? 
Well, not to blow our own horn, but with a feature list as impressive as ours, as demonstrated below; it's hard to argue with solid facts.

  • User-friendly, fast, fun character building system
  • Created by writers, for writers
  • Social & community collaboration tools
  • 99.9% uptime cloud storage system
  • Super-friendly support system

For the most part, they are correct! I absolutely love Charahub! I use it myself but my characters aren't nearly as completed I would like to. Here is an example of a completed character profile from a random person's collection.

The best thing is that you can answer questions about your character (if they apply to them, of course) and you can links in terms of family or relationship! And then, on top of that, you can also draw or (after getting it drawn or commissioned), you can post images of your characters! I'd say that's extremely useful, huh?
