Characters and Real PeoplePublished July 22, 2015
Writing about characters is interesting and sometimes startling. Once I’ve been working on one for a few days, I begin to think this character is a real person. In fact, the other evening I was telling my wife how a certain character felt about particular aspects of reincarnation. My wife asked me if this was somebody I’d talked to or a character in my current book. I told her that it was a character. However when I said this, I realized that as far as I was concerned, this male character was real. As long as I feel that way, I think my readers will too.
