Back to Romance Weekly this week 🙂
1. How much of yourself do you write into your characters? Or do you write characters completely opposite to you?
Actually, it’s odd because I look at my characters and I can see little bits of me in some of them 😀 I think it’s difficult not to add a little of yourself to a character you connect with. Usually for me, these characters are secondary characters and it is only small bits, so it doesn’t show!
2. Has your writing helped you see events in your own life clearer?
It has certainly helped make my life clearer. I was a complete mess before I started writing and being able to focus on something. Now, I feel clear on where I want to head in my life, and I have writing to thank for that.
3. Have you written a character with more of your personal characteristics than any other? What are they?
Hm, I don’t think so. I think if you took all of my characters and mushed them together, you might find quite a few of my characteristics- creativity, honesty… impatience 😀 But no one character is like me, at least not any I have written yet. Maybe I will write a character one day based on me and see if anyone notices!
I like to write my characters as very individual, and I find little bits of my personality in them, but very different bits. I think it adds to their depth, as they each have something I can relate too, even the bad guys, so therefore I write them in a more believable manner… I hope!
Great set of questions this week, really got me thinking about my characters and their individualism.
Now go check out what the fabulous Brenda Margriet has to say in response to these questions!
