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:
