Hi all, recently started my journey into writing fiction. I've started scribbling ideas (for YA) and am starting to get a good sense of the MC. I'm now starting to think about the role of core 'companions' and how the dynamics of these relationships work. So, thought I'd reach out with a few questions to get the ball rolling: what different 'types' of companions have you come across? Which relationships do you find easiest to write authentically? (peers? mentor/student?), Do you ever have your MCs go it alone? Hope that makes sense, I'm very early days at this, so would appreciate any thoughts or tips on articles/books that cover this element of fiction. Many thanks!
