The Ride or Die Sidekick

Most movies and novels have a spicy element. No, not sex. Jeez, the way your mind works. I mean the sidekick, the ride or die partner. This character serves in the role of clown or sage, but also as the one person who backs the hero hundred percent.

Can the story become funnier with the addition of a witty friend?  Would a wise friend serve as a guide for your main character? The sidekick may also lead to the creation of a subplot or a sequel showcasing them.

The next time you pop into the Cloud or open a Word document containing your manuscript consider adding a ride or die sidekick. You might in enjoy the spice.
