Advice: Man Decides Male Friend is Attractive

Hey! I recently found a tactic that works sometimes for me: I pretend like I'm having a big important interview and I ask myself questions about plot, characters, theme, etc and see if I can sprout new ideas. It really works for me sometimes and allows me to think and plan out more than I would have originally thought! Try this out WQA fans! And you, too, WQA!

Great idea. Thanks! :)

Hi! I really have a problem with making characters very similar, or having similar things happen to them. Especially with them having secret identities/trying to be someone they're not so that people would like them. They also have tenancies to be very fearful or think of themselves as "less than human" (In a symbolic or a more literal way, it's sci-fi/fantasy) I guess it's me rubbing off on what I write since I have anxiety issues sometimes, but it bothers me. I love your blog by the way!

Thanks! I’m so glad you love the blog. :)

Here’s a post I did about a chart you can make to keep character traits straight when you have a lot of similar characters. And here’s another one. I also did this post recently about writing with anxiety. :)

It would be okay if my female main character ends with the smart but not handsome guy, the handsome and loner guy ends being friend with her and having a boyfriend, and a love triangle between secondary characters ends in threesome? :o

That should be fine. :)

Hi, your blog is very useful! :) I just wanted to ask something. My main character is a female, and she's almost the typical Strong Female, but she interacts more with women, doesn't wear make-up because she's allergic to it, has a good relationship with her parents and she's very angry only because someone killed her best friend. Is this okay or I should change something? (Sorry for the bad English)

I don’t see a problem with it. That could describe a lot of women I know. Well, except for the part about the murdered best friend. :)
