Think about some of your “favorite” pet peeves. Ask some friends if they have other pet peeves they are willing to tell you.
Write a list of several of them.
Pick one or two and start to frame a character (not yourself) around them. For example, a business executive who really dislikes lukewarm food. Or a movie producer who can’t stand when his son wears his shirt inside out. The sky is the limit here.
