A - Z Writing Challenge - I is for Idiosyncrasies
A while back I read a book where the heroine worked with special needs children. Specifically autistic children. She used rhyme in her teaching, but that rhyming tendency was inherent to who she was and, inevitably, came out when she didn't intend. Like when she was stressed or thinking about something.
When getting to know your characters, do you ever consider idiosyncrasies/quirks? If so, what helps you discover that trait?
Do you have any examples of character quirks? Tell us about them.
Happy Tuesday, y'all.
