How to Write Fiction: How do I capture the important relationships between both friends or even best friends?
Sometimes when we’re writing relationships, friendships and best friends in fiction can often feel obligatory and empty. At times when reading or writing, these characters can feel likeeclones of each other – or at the other end of the spectrum, people who would never, ever be even casual aquaintances, which will irritate a reader to no end, unless there is a reasonkeeping them together.
So what can we as writers do to create realistic friendships while maintaining that “they’ll never get together – it’s not sexual” tone? How important arefriendships in fiction? What can we do as the author of the story to create a better book with deeper, more meaningful friendships?
