So I'm sure most of us can agree that when reading we often picture it as a movie, whether with movie stars, friends, family, etc. etc....but is it the same for you with writing? For me, it has to be. I have a hard time writing a scene or chapter if I can't picture every tiny detail of the characters, even if some of those details never make it into my book. I actually use people I know in my everyday life from school as my characters appearances and a little bit of a tweaked personality. I find it better to write like this, because if you can't see your own characters how is your reader supposed too? Just wondering how many of you use people you know or celebrities as character appearances?
