For Writers – The Difference Between flawed Characters and too dumb to live reblogged from Kristen Lamb

As writer’s we’re always trying to perfect the story, keep it exciting and at least moving forward.  We hope to create characters that live on in the reader’s imagination after the story is done. There’s a fine line you don’t want to cross, and that’s where your characters do stupid stuff, to put it plainly. There has to be a reason, a motivation to their action that makes sense, so the reader doesn’t toss your book against the wall.

Great post by Kristen Lamb regarding the same:

About Echoes from the Past. A woman, a man and a child with nothing in common but their respective troubled pasts. Three wounded souls determined to survive alone until they realize all they need to heal is each other.

On the verge of a nervous breakdown, Christie reacts by running away, emotionally and physically. Down to her last twenty dollars, she’s determined to fulfill her dead sister’s last wish — to locate their sister Judith who left home twenty years before. Her quest brings her into the lives of Garrett, Judith’s husband, and the emotionally fragile Hannah, Judith’s daughter. Christie is devastated to learn Judith died two years before. When Christie insists on getting to know her niece, Garrett agrees on the condition she doesn’t reveal her identity. He hires her to work at his horse farm but what he doesn’t count on is the turmoil and hope Christie brings into their lives.

Christie’s own emotional journey forces her to come to terms with her family’s alcoholism and her perception of herself.
