I had a quick scan through to find if anyone else had had this problem, but I couldn't seem to unearth anything. So... I was wondering if anyone found that certain 'characters' repeat themselves? I'm a 'beginnings writer' and thus really have problems finishing things (i.e. never have), the problem is that characters from unfinished stories keep reappearing in new ones, albeit with new names and looks; but I always seem to realise someway into writing them that they're essentially the same person. Classic being my main female protagonist. There are loads of different 'characters' and personalities in the other characters I write but the main ones... well. :redface: I was wondering if anyone else had ever found this? Is it common, am I haunted by characters unfinished or is it just that I lack the skill to rewrite an MC?
