Let's talk a little bit about our main characters this week. What do you have in common with them? How are they different from you? How do you prepare to write someone whose life experiences may be very dissimilar to your own?

ETA: this post is a day early because your mod is really out of it from a cold and thought today was Friday. Oops.

Since Valentine's Day was yesterday, let's talk a bit how we handle (or don't handle) romance in our writing. Is the development of a romantic relationship integral to your story? Or do you focus on other kinds of relationships? Are your characters even interested in romance right now? How do your characters juggle their love lives with going on adventures/fighting crime/saving the universe/etc?
