What makes a character memorable? What draws you in? Creating character’s people will remember is no easy task. There are so many tired clichés that people have read/seen over and over again. The answer may be different for everyone, after all we are all unique.

As an author, it is my job to make you—the reader—feel. I try to tug on the emotional side of your imagination. I try to make you care about what happens on the page, but more importantly, care about the character on the page. If I can do that, then I have done my job.

I will stretch your limits, give you examples of other brilliant characters, and hopefully move you into the direction of creating your own memorable characters.
