I have a question for authors. I am working on my first fictional book and I am trying to build the characters within my story. How do you as writers construct their personalities? Do you bring them just from your imagination or do you find friends and family as the inspiration to your characters traits? I just wouldn’t want anyone to feel offended if they realized I might have used their personality to develop a character in my story. Any Advice or Tips?
