Have you ever included relatives (not just relatives, but anyone you know personally) in your story/stories? Have you ever let them read it? I would, but I don't really know how they'd feel about it. But I don't want to say "I'm going to write about you, 'kay thanks bye." I don't want to be mad at me for putting them in the spotlight, or for them to mad because I wrote them doing something that they normally wouldn't. But I don't think I'd want to tell them in advance, because I could either have to hear them bragging about it or have them trying to hang over my shoulder and give me advice about their character. So, if you've ever included people you know in your stories, want to, think I should/shouldn't, etc. post here.
