Do your characters walk right out of the book? We’re supposed to make them as “real” as possible but where is the fine line of reality and likeability? If I make my character too snarky, someone won’t like her.
Too imperfect, they may get tired of how many times she messes up.
Sweet, charming and beautiful, we’ll all hate her because she’s too good : )
Writers – how do you create believable, likeable characters?
Readers – Tell me about a favorite character in a book you’ve read and why you like them.
