Personality

How do you give your characters personality when writing a book?

I've been watching lots of movies on television, to find out 'what makes a personality.'  Most characters are rather bland.  They follow a boring script and have no quirks.

So I figured that a real character's personality should have something like the following:


  • quirks
  • spontaneity
  • ability to think outside the box
  • shows emotions
  • can think on their feet
  • good at solving problems
  • knows how to laugh

I wish Hollywood would train some of their actors and teach them how to be real.  Maybe if they hung out with normal people, they'd learn.

Have a great day!
