Today, I do not have a well focused prepared couple of paragraphs, not even a theme like journalists use to conduct interviews.
I just looked up character likeability in fiction and read a blog post about another author’s novel’s main woman character.
It could be argued than anyone who elicits strong feelings, whether or good or bad or both will end up as someone who really stands out in other peoples’ minds.
I have written stories having characters intended to be very likeable and others meant to be disliked or found troublesome or scary.
Wee hoo, it is a sunny warm summer day in a Continental European country where they don’t seem to have learned ‘peanut and jelly sandwich’.
