And here we can see the Blogger in her natural habitat.
The blogger is a shy, docile creature…
… that prefers the darkness…
… and tends to be wary of the outside world.
The Blogger rarely sleeps, and when it does, it does so in seemingly random places.
We have attempted to understand the dietary habits of the Blogger…
… but to no avail.
I am so glad this is back
A character can still be a great character without being a good person.
In fact, some of the best characters are terrible people.
Because a character’s worth should be based on how complex and interesting they are, not their morality if they were real.
A character doesn’t necessarily have to be complex to be interesting, however. Sometimes, simple characters can be the most powerful.
Complexity does not make a character great. It’s how you write the character, how they speak, how they eat, how they walk, who they love, how real they feel, that makes them great. You can take an Average Joe and make people root for him. He can have a simple personality, the typical person you might meet in an office environment, but he can become much more without becoming complex.
Complexity =/= greatness. It’s about what the character does, where they go, who they become; it’s about their journey. Whether their morals are skewed or perfectly aligned, making them memorable despite their simplicity is a feat in and of itself, and the importance of simple characters should never be overshadowed by a love of complex ones.
