Relationships are the most basic social building blocks for your character. The important people surrounding them will aid in their success or contribute to their downfall, and you’ll need some of each in your character’s life to craft a story with all the necessary ups-and-downs. Enter the Relationship Thesaurus, where we’ve examined the types of relationships that commonly exist and explored the numerous ways to make them healthy or dysfunctional, safe or toxic, supportive or full of conflict—whatever you need to take your story to the next level.
