How human DOES a character HAVE to be can they be 1 dimensional and still feel human or do they have to have all there feelings and thoughts out for the reader to see or could they hint at there feelings and thoughts leaving the reader to feel and think for them? In a way the less real a character is the more real we make them, if a robot cries and it isn't explained why OR how it does WE as readers fill in the blanks and feel more for it because we make our own life and reasons for the character. "A lone metallic and robotic creature shed's a single tear as i pass by. " how does this sentence affect you as a reader and how does it affect the character of 1. The robot And 2. The character passing by ? So it begs the point of as writers do we create elaborate characters and make the reader feel or do we ebb on the side of leaving enough blank that our characters are created more by the readers than us! ?
