"There Is No Trick To This

Assume every character you write is a full human being just as you take yourself to be, with no more or less mystery than you feel for your own self.

Get rid of the word “them,” the very idea of an Unknowable Other with a Mysterious Psychology.

In a narrative that you write and which you encompass the whole of, there can be no “them.” If there is you have already lost the battle because you are relegating characters you feel uncomfortable writing to a lesser, inferior, not-fully-human state, as if they are people who vaguely resemble you in having arms and legs and heads but are otherwise aliens.

People are not aliens. They are people.

Treat all your characters as people.
