JamesSavik Posted November 11, 2005 Report Share Posted November 11, 2005 Pop Quiz: What stories did these characters come from? 1. Aiden & Owen 2. Evan Smiley & Aaron castle 3. Jude & Quinn 4. Dave & Tim 5. Joey & Scott 6. Brian & Pete ____________________________________________ Easy isn't it? The answers are at the bottom if you missed any. I'll bet you recognize at least several of them right off the top of your head. What makes a character compelling and unforgettable? How do you get to know them, care about their ups and downs, laugh with them and even cry with them? What is is that makes you remember them years after you've read their story? Let me know. It's an interesting question for a writer. I think that it is a combination of a number of things: empathy for the characters, memories of someone that they might remind you of, relating to their struggles. I would like to know what readers and writers think. The Answers ------------------------------------- 1. Aiden & Owen: The Log Way by Dom Luka 2.
