A reader’s question: What are some tips on writing characters you want to spend time with?

How to create a character you’d like to spend time with?

Easy! Create a character with the same characteristics as people you know that you enjoy spending time with. If you can’t come with anyone like that, then make that character into the kind of person you wish you knew and could spend time with.

Because the bottom line is that we writers create characters we like or hate just like the people we like or hate in real life.

Which is kind of scary because you can read any writers’s works and know what they think of people.

What kind of people do you like to spend time with? Would they make good characters?
