A Post about Stupid MC's

My very cool friend Kristin wrote a GREAT post about MC's making stupid decisions over and over. I have a strange relationship with this phenom. While I abhor characters who make dumb decisions or refuse to see the solution that's hovering right in front of their face, I tend to lead my own characters into the same trap. So I definitely thing it's worth your time to hop over to the ANWA Founders & Friends blog and read Kris's awesome post.

  1. Aww, thanks Ranee! I think it's really okay to have your characters make some dumb choices, especially in the beginning of the book. Some of those choices might help to start out the conflict. But you're going to have to reach a point where your MC wises up and learns how to think things through and solve his or her problems, or else readers are going to find them tedious.


About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
