One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other. Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.
This week’s topic is:
Last time we asked about your inspiration for settings. Today we want to talk about characters. When you are creating characters, do you base them off of real people you either know or have seen in books, movies or TV shows? How do you change the characters so that you keep them realistic but do not run the risk of them being easily identifiable with the person you based them on?
Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.
