I’ve been writing my work of fiction for quite some time now, and I’ve been thinking about the inner dialogue I used when approaching fictional circumstances from my character's point of view. I generally try to base my characters on real people or amalgams there of, but I’ve noticed that getting into the heads of these fictional beings might require finding personal justifications for their actions that are actually unnatural for me. Moreover, I’ve wondered if its normal to get lost in the characters you create and end up behaving or thinking like they do out side of the page? Rather like “The Method,” but through writing other than acting. I’ve just recently re-watched: “The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.” So if you’ve seen that film, you know where I’m coming from, although Peter Sellers was an extreme case. Could you, for example, reply to this thread as if you were one of the characters in one of your stories, if you can?
