Wordplay, Swordplay, asks if you really want to create likeable characters. She uses a Charles Swindoll quote as a guideline.
Writers: How do you create likeable characters?
Readers: What traits bond you to a character?
Have a blessed weekend!
Thanks for the link, Susan. I like characters that I can relate to. I don't want them to be too whiny or perfect, just real and willing, overall, to grow.
Hi Karen -
That's a good formula for a great character. :)
You girls know this topic far better than I do, since I simply write about "live" characters. :) And you would identify with the co-authors in your interview this week!
Hope all is clipping along, creativity flowing, with your manuscript, you two. :)
I like characters that are a bit eccentric. I enjoy the element of surprise and humor that slightly unusual characters bring to a story.
Hi Rhonda - Sometimes it's harder to write about live characters!
Hi Jean - I like characters with spunk and the courage of their convictions. :)
Defenitely need to go there one day :)
Hi Marja -
