    Hi, Kiki. Great points on creating characters and using them to turn fantasy into reality! I was nodding my head all the way.

    We shouldn’t be afraid to use real experiences of real people in our stories. But think about multiple real people, then base the character on your own ideas. That way, if someone thinks a character is based on a particular friend of yours, you can honestly say that the character is based on no real person, even if on a few particular points, the character was inspired by real people.
