One of my favorite things is writing for different types of characters. The easiest way for me to write is by having an interesting or funny character do something interesting or funny, and readers like it too. For me the easiest way to do this is by making a true odd ball and seeing how they react to different situations. Combining character traits isn’t very hard. Take a job of hobby, let’s say a politician, combine a dissimilar trait, how about the inability to hide their emotions, and them throw them into an odd world or out of the norm experience, such as a surprise war on sentient vegetables. It’s hard to be disinterested in a character that is completely out of there element. What traits do your favorite characters have?
