Hi, loves! -waves-
You all remember this post from last month for the Teens Can Write, Too! blog chain post, yes? This month, it’s pretty much the same deal– the only difference is the prompt. And so:
How do you develop and relate to your characters?
Well, let’s start with the first question: how do I develop them? Well, it’s pretty simple. I develp them by knowing people; by watching TV; by critiquing movies and listening to real people’s problems. Then I mix and match until I find a combination that I like.
And as for relating to my characters? The short answer is that I don’t. I honestly don’t. I don’t like relating to them, because I tend to kill them all off. If I relate to a character, it hurts more. I mean, all of my characters are my babies… but killing off one that I actually like or relate to? It’s not fun, guys.
Plus, my characters tend to be pessimistic, unhappy, or annoying. I’d kind of rather not relate to them. (:
