Character creation

I was just curious as to what other people's character creation process is. What do you need to do to turn writing on a paper into a living, breathing character? Do you make a race/class/concept you've been interested in and then spin a story around that, or wing it for a few sessions until something materializes on its own, or fill out some character questionnaires to help get into the mindset?

For me, the transformation from feats and stats into a real person comes from my music collection. If I'm listening to my iPod during my daily commute and a song comes on that makes me think, "Man, that is so my sorceress. She would definitely belt this out on karaoke night," that's when I know I've got a solid character forming in my mind.
