PRE-MADE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR CHARACTERS
If you interview published authors across all genres, you will be hard pressed to find one who claims his or her characters sprang forth from thin air. More often than not, the fictional players that populate stage, page, cinema, and television reflect aspects of the writers’ own personalities, composites of friends and relatives, or are modeled after specific actors, politicians, rock stars, or criminals. The longstanding advice of “write what you know” translates aptly to “write who you know” and what their actions reveal about their character, strengths and flaws, and motivations.
Let's talk about how you can find inspiration from the colorful characters in your world.
These are the most helpful podcasts and the added resources work for going back and reviewing what you
can't remember to do. Really fun and a good resource for every writer.
