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.
