Maybe I shouldn’t admit to this, but one of the reasons why I struggle so much with writing normal characters is because I feel like I’m mocking them.
My thought process goes something like, “I have heard multiple people say this sentence, so I’m going to have this normal character also say it.”
Then I feel like I delved into every single bad stereotype known to mankind.
Though it’s not my fault that so many real life people say the exact same things. Word for word.
What is up with that anyway?
