The Insecure Writer's Support Group-July 3, 2019


It's the first Wednesday of the month, and that means it's time to convene another meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group! Alex J. Cavanaugh has assembled another wonderful group of co-hosts: Erika Beebe, Natalie Aguirre, Jennifer Lane, MJ Fifield, Lisa Buie-Collard, and Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor.

Be sure to check out the IWSG website for great writerly resources!

The optional question for this month is: What personal traits have you written into your character(s)?

While I try not to make any of my characters into carbon copies of me, I can't help but sprinkle certain aspects of my personality into them every once in awhile. I tend to write about introverts a lot. I also enjoy writing stories about creative types like writers and artists. Maybe that's because writing about other people engaging in the creative process helps me understand how my own creativity works. It helps me relate to my characters.

What personal traits have you written into your character(s)?

  1. I definitely get that. Most of my characters have some kind of creative outlet.

  2. Hi,
    There are bits of me in every character that I write about. It's the many faces an many voices within me and they come to expression.

  3. All of my characters have little aspects of me, some more than others.

  4. Maybe I need more creative characters then.

  5. I agree that it's hard not to put some of yourself in your characters. Though this whole thread is getting me thinking of how interesting it could be to write someone really different than me.

  6. I'm the same. I sprinkle bits of me into my characters, but they are usually more bold than I ever will be.

  7. Strangely, I don't have many characters that are creative. It feels like I could spook my own creativity if I put it in writing, for everyone to see.

  8. It is easier to create people we can relate to and some insider knowledge about. I like your term "sprinkling." That's perfect.

  9. As a retired equestrian journalist, I admit that I do slip in Pulitzer dreamers and a few horses. As you say, I "sprinkle certain aspects" of myself into my characters.
