When writing...

I was reading tweets this morning and one particular message made me pause before going to other tweets. It was short and direct message.

"Often character flaws are also character strengths." from TipsOnWriting.

One example given by Ms. Jean Lorrah  was Sherlock Holmes. "If Sherlock Holmes bothered to cultivate social skills, he would not be able to concentrate on his detective skills."

This is something to consider when creating character profiles, I think.


  1. Funny, I came across the same tweet as well. It's true though, a flaw in a character can also be seen as a strength.

  2. Kewl. I didn't know it can be so it will be fascinating to create a character like that.


Thank you for visiting and dropping me a line or two. ☺
