Okay, I’m a young writer and I do this: I have a characters and I’ll act as the character with my friend as well. We’ll act out their lives, and switch to other characters. Sometimes we’ll be a couple and act it out cuddling but we have no actual affection of that sorts toward each other and we’ll even act out emotional times in the people’s lives and we’ll give each of the characters personalities. Sometime we’ll change our voices as well to suit the character and they can range from 6 year old children to a gay father. They all co-exist in the same ‘story’ is this weird??? p.s the story is shared with her, she writes one sister pov and I the other
That's amazing. I did that on my own when I was young for the first few books I published. The fact that you have a friend that will do it with you . . . They're a keeper. That's a good friendship. Best of luck in your endeavors as an author!
Sound like a good friend. I don't think there is anything wrong with this, as long as it doesn't interfere with your every day life or your actual friendship with him or her. So act on, especially if it helps you with your writing.
It doesn't sound weird to me, your creating a story, it's a good thing to test them out, see what they are like. I actually did some research on writing novels and many authors act their characters out to hear what they sound like etc. As long as you don't take it to far and make things awkward between you or anything, I don't see the harm in it.
I'm a writer too. In high school me and my friends in literature class liked to act out scenes in both plays and books (in college, there aren't such enthusiasts in my group of friends--in fact, most of my friends are dyslexic guys who hate anything that implies writing and most forms of art...or big words lol). I think you're fine. We're creative and thinking outside the box makes us great friends :)
It's kind of like playing with toys, except instead of using dolls or teddy bears, you use yourself and any other volunteer.
Not really a weird thing. It's something you like to do, so do it!!!
And yes, don't let it get out of hand! Just have fun and be comfortable with it! :)
There's nothing wrong with this at all. In fact, it's very normal. On top of this, I am a writer myself, and I can understand different creative processes from that point of view. If it helps, when I write, I get myself to the most emotional state possible. Then I execute those emotions, as if I am the character, writing the story itself.
