I think one of the reasons Hollywood movies work so well is that the big stars come with a ready made attitude. We all know what to expect from actors like Jack Nicholson, Robert DeNiro and Julia Roberts. No matter what characters they play, we sense their attitudes, their strength and depth, even though we know they're only acting! So, the message is that during character development, try to imagine being inside the heads of your characters. Don't just give them attributes, histories and agendas; go the extra mile and give 'em attitude! *Curtosy of Trent Steele's newsletter which I get via email* I would like your views as to how you would give a character of yours some seriously good attitude to make the reader either love or hate them. Examples would be fabulous.
