HOW TO CREATE RELATABLE AND LOVABLE PROTAGONISTS

1. BE IN LOVE, OR IN TROUBLE (OR BOTH)
Feeling this on the first page helps to make readers connect and fall for the character.

2. THEY DON'T REALISE HOW AWESOME THEY ARE
Other characters like them more than they like themselves.

3. THEY DEFEND THE INNOCENT
Standing up for the underdogs.

4. THEY ARE LOYAL
Even a character who lies, cheats, and steals, but still sticks up for his friend, is likable.

5. CREATE MEMORY ENTRANCES
What would you notice about them meeting them the first time? Their charm, or uneasy silence?

6. USE PROPS
What your character carries with him or her everywhere, or keeps in an honoured place in the bedroom, can tell a lot about him or her.
