We’ve got some top-notch character development morsels for you. Last week, I posted an excerpt from The Negative Trait Thesaurus at C.S. Lakin’s LiveWriteThrive. I must not have offended her too badly because she invited me back to share a page from The Positive Trait Thesaurus.
Meanwhile, my clone is over at Kristen Lamb’s blog, impersonating me and talking about The Duality of Character Traits, in which she explains why including the good and the bad of a particular trait will add authenticity to your character.
Angela’s been busy, too, hijacking John Yeoman’s Writer’s Village with a post about Character Vulnerability. If you want to make your character feel completely exposed (especially those “tough guy” hero types), then check out 8 Ways To Make Your Hero More Plausible. The comment thread is hopping over there, so join the conversation while it’s hot.
