So I am getting into my characters and enjoy writing them into scenes and putting them in scenarios where I want to hug them or laugh with them and I have realised I have loosely based two characters (one main) on people I know. Writing them is easier than the ones I have not as I know their routines, characteristics, habits and personality without making it up.
So with the other characters I am now wondering if to also do this or keep with what I have?
I need to make sure all characters are treated like they are the main one but its proving hard and feel they are getting side lined 😦
Have you based any characters with anyone you know? Are your sub characters not in the lime light as they should feel to be?
