Resources: How To Get Your Fix
Every character had a downfall; for some, this can be a bad personality, a tendency to swear like a sailor, or perhaps they just like to take part in a few “dangerous” recreational activities. It’s been said that writers should write what they know, but this advice is limiting and outdated. With a whole world of information out there, there’s no reason you shouldn’t write the character you want. If you don’t take part in any of these activities yourself, here are some resources I hope will help.

Remember that every character will handle a situation differently. The important part isn’t to follow these guides like a step to step blueprint, but to remember to be accurate as your character interprets their environment and actions. Most importantly, be mindful of your character’s motives: is he or she just looking for a good time? Is it recreational or a dependence? Check out these helpful links on the dangers of self medicating and withdrawal symptoms.
