So, I'm not much of a writer, in fact the last time I wrote a story was when I was 10 (Been nearly 10 years since).
Where I usually write is in roleplay situations. Where my characters are constantly interacting with others, as we all make our way through some ridiculous problem together, or kill something disgustingly difficult.
What I wanted to know, are there any specific exercises I can take as a person to accomplish the following.
Keep My characters personalities separate. It may seem like a silly question, however I struggle with this. What i mean is, when running multiple characters I tend to sort of merge their personalities into one abomination, it takes time, but eventually they all become the same old character with different weapons, or something.
For example, I had two characters, one named Adrian, another named Ashley. In the beginning Ashley was a light hearted smooth talking kinda guy, whereas Adrian was more on the Edgy side of things. He had a classical 'I'm rich, so i'm better than you' demeanor... In the end, their personalities merged slightly and it was just messy.
I want to prevent this in the future, though don't want to stop my Roleplay activities. Is there anything I can do?
