Quote of the Week #1

Greetings!

Welcome to the very first “Quote of the Week,” where I post a quote I like, and then talk about it! ^^ Enjoy!

The Quote for this week is:

If you’re writing about a character, if he’s a powerful character, unless you give him vulnerability, I don’t think he’ll be as interesting to the reader ~ Stan Lee

This quote is spot-on. A character without vulnerabilities isn’t likeable. He won’t be relatable to the reader, and therefore won’t be liked nearly as much. If a character has vulnerabilities, a reader can look at him and realize that they have the exact same problems as they do. This makes them attach to the character a lot easier.

Boring characters can be the bane of excellent stories and vice-versa. As such, make sure your main character has weaknesses along with strengths. An interesting hero (or any character, really) can help your book immensely ^^

Talk to you soon,

-Roo!
