...when your characters come to life?I need a reference when describing or interacting with my characters. I need a mental image, a face, or person.
Actions, whether in a book, music, or on the movie screen, help me to define and shape my people.
And yes, they are people, as real as the cat sitting beside me.
I have conversations with her also.

I used to think that everything was fine.
All alone and trapped in time.
At war always with the ones who would enslave him. Running.Bad Company by Five Finger Death Punch
...always on the run.
Destiny is the rising sun.
Oh, I was born shotgun in my hand.
Behind a gun I'll make my final stand.
The people in his life are fleeting. He accepts that they are like the seasons, they come and go. But that is fine. To tie himself to a person, especially a romantic alliance, is to lose his existence.
Wicked Game by Chris Isaak
No, I don’t want to fall in love.
What a wicked game you play
To make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way.
