10 Zany, Dynamic, Memorable, Eccentric, or One-of-a-Kind Characters
I’m linking up today with #TopTenTuesday: That Artsy Reader Girl: July Freebie.
I LOVE wonderful, quirky characters! Each one lives in my memories forever! And I love the opportunity to talk about them and share them!
In no particular order, let me introduce you to a few memorable “quirky” characters….
self-determined and one-of-a-kind
(Content Warning: talk of assisted suicide)
fearless, adventurous, and determined
fiesty, independently minded, and determined
quirky, lonely, grouchy, and loveable
(Content Warning: talk of suicide, grief)
hurt, brave, lonely, and quirky
(Content Warning: suicide attempt, child neglect/abuse)
independent, quirky, and finding her voice
determined, compassionate, a difference-maker, and a victim of racism
innovative and brave overcomers
ingenious, sacrificial, and an unforgettable dynamic duo (IYKYK)
reluctant companions, brave, and a dynamic duo
There are sooooo many more (I must stop!), but these are the first 10 that come to mind. Fredrik Backman and Rachel Joyce are two of my favorite authors for their characterizations.
Who is one of your most memorable characters?
