Creating Characters

This is the first Wednesday of October and time for my post for the IWSG or Insecure Writers Support Group.

October 4 question – Have you ever slipped any of your personal information into your characters, either by accident or on purpose?

My characters are completely imaginary but I like to be able to figure out what makes them tick. So when I am writing about them I will explore what is going on with them (at least in my head). I like to add background, a past, or what they are thinking. I really love it when other authors do this with their characters because I find it makes their books so interesting and gives them more depth.  I do not include personal information into my characters but I do not discount doing this if it would add to the story.
