Who have you written into a book? Be honest.

It could be someone that just inspired one specific trait in a character. Maybe your MC's ex has a weird obsession with anime, kind of like a certain ex of yours. Or maybe the evil witch wreaking havoc on your other characters is straight-up Mrs. Hawkins, your 3rd grade math teacher. Confession time – who's in your book?

Sorry folks - I tried really hard - I tried to walk it off - but I can't put stuff that personal on here.  No comments yet so whew!  I can share if its funny - stupid - but there is just stuff too deep for pickin' and that was IT!

So my funny answer IS - If you are a hollow shallow  mean person -----I will WRITE you. 
If You have an annoying trait  - watch out it is fair game.

If you talk pretty - you are there.
If others don't notice you ---I do.
And most deeply -If I love you - you already know.


  1. Haha! That needs to be on a t-shirt. Maybe writers should come with warnings. "I'll totally write you into my novel if you tick me off..."

    I don't blame you for not wanting to put anything really personal out there. Because once it's out there...

  2. Well it was nothing bad I didn't know it would even bother me - thought I was an open book...LOL. But all of a sudden I just couldn't. grrrr my candy bar - hehehe. I didn't think I had a mushy! Speaking of showing up late to the party!

  3. We all put people from real life in our work. It's hard NOT to.

  4. Too funny! Some of that is too much to shar, isn't it? But I love what you changed it too. Amen, sister!

  5. I agree, but I almost think we do it unintentional. We just write what we know. And after reading a character I realize they all embody some characteristics of people I know. Oops!

  6. I think that I put some of my own life experiences into my main character even if he doesn't look anything like me at all.
