I’m attending InkersCon over the next couple of weeks and every day from July 17-into the first week of August, there're these things called round tables. Each day, they cover different topics related to writing our novels.
Today’s was Creating Relatable Characters. After a PowerPoint presentation, the presenter opened it up for discussion. We got to “Where do you find your inspiration?” People were saying TV shows, movies, music, TikTok.
“Wait, your characters didn’t tell you the story? What they look like, their personalities, their motives? I thought that happened with everyone.” And they all look at me like I have snakes coming out of my head.
Huh. Apparently, it’s just me.
Alright then, I’ll take it.
