What do you see in yourself when you see your favorite character in a TV show, cartoon, book or storyline of some kind?
This is something that I have been struggling with for some time now and it is a very good thing I have! This question has allowed me to discover some things about myself as well as my own characters in my own work.
Take Angelo from “Angelo Rules” for instance! I have been asking myself why I am SO into his character.
Easy…because he reminds me of certain aspects of my own character and personality. Especially since I was able to talk my way in and out of stuff ALL the time. It was how I survived most of my childhood…and teen years! Angelo’s sly and clever traits are a reminder of my own traits and abilities that I use more for good rather than mischief.
What characteristics and personalities do you pull from your favorite characters from your favorite book, TV show, web series or whatever?
