Do you guys ever write something into your story that is somewhat of a nod to the truth or your friends? For example. I'm working on a science fiction piece and the name of my planet is my lover's name spelled backwards. I've used a friend's bar as a setting before. And I've built a whole story around another friend's words of advice. I guess these could be seen somewhat as inside jokes or a secret private hello. I've been having a little fun with this lately. If you've done something similar, in what ways? I don't think this sort of thing should or has to interrupt a story. Just having some fun with my serious writing career.
