#IWSG Wednesday: Let’s get personal

This month’s IWSG question: Have you ever slipped any of your personal information into your characters, either by accident or on purpose?

Absolutely I have! Mostly it’s personal tidbits about other people; character attributes , physical features… sometimes it’s my own personality quirks or tendencies that come out in a specific character. Sometimes it’s a name that I associate with a terrible person. The name of my antagonist in my 2nd book (which I’m currently seeking Beta readers for) is actually the name of a guy who stalked me in high school. Huge creep. To this day I don’t like the “name” though I try really hard not to judge people who have that name…

And then there are tidbits I slip in that I am sure people don’t wan’t me to brag about…well I guess that depends on the person. There’s lots of little secret tidbits peppered in my works! Someday maybe I’ll do a fun little blog post Q and A. Maybe around the release of my debut novel. “hehehehehe”

Yoru turn: Do you ever let perosnal information slip into the stories you write?

  1. At some point my editor pointed out to me that there are certain recurring themes in my writing, like family, religion, and illness. I hadn’t even realized I was doing it, but that was my real life sneaking into my stories. There are probably lots of ways life influences our writing without our knowing it.
