What do you do when (if?) you get stuck with characters or a plot? I feel like I'm writing the same two people over and over again.

I try to figure out what exactly makes these characters different from the ones with whom there are many similarities; then I make sure to really flesh out those differences. I don't think it's uncommon to gravitate to "like" characters or people; but everyone has differences. :)

Also, soap operas recycle plots all the time and folks act like it's a new twist every time! So it's not the worst thing you can do. After all; if it's not broke, folk don't like it when you try to "fix" it!

Ask me anything
