I’ve heard it said that a writer’s often put elements of themselves into their characters.
It’s an interesting thought and made me take another look at the characters in my books…
When I write I put myself in the character’s heads, so perhaps there’s more of me in them than I care to admit. I try to think like they do. What would the character do in the situation he, she or it finds himself, herself or itself in? I don their skin and the ideas come tumbling in.
Hmmmm. Food for thought.
