"You are not in control of your or your character’s legacy. Trying to force a character to be memorable is, to me, like trying to make yourself memorable - people will think you’re a pretentious sap. You can make your characters lovable by having them give love to others, by showing them trying their hardest, and by struggling against their own limitations. Be sure to give them limitations. You can make them funny, quirky, unique, or, even better, you can base them on real-life people you know and toss out the elements you are copying from someone else’s work. Don’t force. Tell the truth, and the truth will be funny." - Evan Gore (The Weekenders writer)
