Good post, Steph. I especially liked what you said in the podcast about creating characters by taking bits from other people, and mashing them up. It’s one of my favorite ways to develop characters, and I think it also prevents anyone from being able to say “Hey! That jerk is definitely writing about ME!”
Hahaha! You are so right. It’s the ultimate in undercover work. No one needs to really know who a writer uses as inspiration…but it’s always good to throw them off the scent. LOL. Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it!
