Have diverse characters in your novel

Hi there! It’s been a while since I have posted. I am working on my National Novel Writing Month project, The Disintegrated House, and because I am a “pantser” (I don’t outline much), I am constantly finding out new things about my characters. Danny Blacksmith (actor Daniel Henney) is a half Korean, bisexual, spent time in prison, bartender/bouncer. I think that branching out and making your characters have qualities that aren’t generic make for a more interesting story (DUH!). Danny is my main male character’s BFF since they spent time together (no, not in THAT way) in prison. Get wild with your peeps. They can be/do/have done ANYthing. No, really. ANYTHING. Don’t limit yourself in writing strictly with what you have had experience. Characters are like trees- they have their main (trunk) qualities, but they have branches and leaves too. Even different color leaves if you want to get super detailed! Ask questions. Interview. Take things that you may not find appealing and apply them. No one in real life is perfect so your characters shouldn’t be either. Happy writing and reading! ❤
