Here is my question. I know that a typical character, with no quirks, is a bit cliche. (Think, the hard nosed, un-emotional business man, the sweet, loving teacher...) So you are supposed to give a twist to your character, right? But in the story I am currently working on, I made the un-emotional lawyer have a private studio where he goes to pain, and his emotions are channeled through his art, and so nobody sees them. Is that also too much of a cliche? It may sound unrealistic, but I am actually like that also. You will never see me cry, get angry, scream, or display any other emotions. My emotions go straight into my writing, where I make my reader laugh, cry, or show other emotions. I guess to sum it up, my question is, how much can you twist the character before it gets twisted too far? Thanks!
