Everybody is a character
I've seen on a couple of blogs already, but it's a rather interestingly weird idea. Some people, to avoid exposing their friends, acquaintances, enemies, family, spouses, lovers, or even themselves, give nicknames to people in their stories. So, instead of saying Cipri this, Cipri that, I would say Dracula this, Dracula that. Only those from my inner circle would understand. Or not. Some people even go further and name their friends' A, B, C, D... I have short memory for these things so I would definitely need to right down all the codes. I rather stick to the obvious nicknames. Obvious for me. So I'll give it a try from the post below onwards. It might help while writing the book.
