Hooking Your Readers by Making Memorable Characters. Plus, horrible panelist types. Plus, Death Grip Eye. It's an awesome episode.
So, when you read a book, and you remember a book, a lot of the time it isn’t the plot that you’re remembering. It’s the character that has held you enthralled.
Plots are super important, but it’s the character that things are happening to that really hold the plot together.
A lot of stories fail because their main character is… Well, he’s boring. She’s a bit blah. There’s nothing about them that stands out.
We remember the people who are larger the life. I know we’ve talked about it before, but it’s so important. Make your characters outrageous. Make them wild. We all love Captain America, but he’s not quite as memorable as The Hulk or Iron Man.
