How To Make Them Stand Out Without Being Obnoxious
By Jaybie Jarrett
Think of some memorable main characters you’ve enjoyed reading about/watching. Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz, Edward Elric, Katniss Everdeen, or Harry Potter maybe. What was it about them that set them apart from the other characters? They have quirks, things that make them unique. It can be important to have your main character have something about them that makes them stand out from the crowd a little. They should usually be someone you can root for, maybe likeable. But they should also be fallible, like you and me. You need to make them a human, albeit an extraordinary human.
