Plot is the fun stuff that happens in a story, yet the story is all about the character. Look at the cover on a book or a film. A majority of them either feature a character, groups of characters or the name of a character on the front. Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, Spider Man, SuperMan, Wonderwoman, Hansel and Gretal, Charlie Brown or also known as The Peanuts etc. The list goes on and on.
A story is about a character and how they grow. Normally we tend to care the most about flawed characters. We hear about these type of characters in the news all the time. Why is that? Why do we care so much about flawed characters? Because these are the characters we care to see change. To see how they overcame their problems, obstacles and stakes to improve not only their life, yet the lives of the people around them. If you can figure out who your character is and what they've got to learn then writing their story should be more practical. Have fun creating your characters.#Writing #Reading #Characters #Plot #Stories
