This week’s prompt is for my top ten character traits I love!
I really love an independent character. Someone who doesn’t need another person to take care of them, but still want them there because they love them. All the heart eyes for that trait.
To me nothing drives a character more than determination. I need more characters in my life that have such a strong sense of self that they’re determined to achieve their goal no matter what.
Who doesn’t love a charming character? They make stories so much more interesting when they turn on the charm factor.
Character’s that have a sentiment towards an object or person make my heart flutter and melt. I am such a sentimental person that I really enjoy seeing that trait in other people.
Stubborn characters are the best 😂 the main one I can think of is Harry Potter himself. He is the most stubborn person and I absolutely love him for it!
Being humble is so important. I have a hard time reading about a character that thinks they’re better than everyone else because of where they were born or who they were born to. Being humble shows you how far you’ve come when you make it to the top, how could you enjoy the view when you don’t know how to appreciate it?
I love a character that knows who they are and they want they stand for. They have a strong moral code and stick to it. Even better is when that moral code evolves with them as they grow.
Being merciful towards those that have wronged you is difficult which is why I admire it when I see it.
I love a character that has the ability to make something out of seemingly nothing! There is no better trait than being resourceful in a world that all but makes it impossible.
Honesty is key. Depending on the character I have a hard time liking them if they can’t (over time at least) be honest with others AND more importantly be honest with themselves. It is such a good feeling watching a character evolve and change and become honest with who they are.
