    Do you have problems writing characters? Well hopefully this guide's for you. Enjoy exploring the emotional depth and range of your character, stabbing stereotypes in the face and developing realistic characters, not perfect ones.

Thank you for this test! :) I never realized how many stories seem to fail this...
@EricVarkey @AgathaChristieLover I have a dictionary from the fifth grade.  I use it a lot.  Don't tell my teacher.  ;)

Wow, now that I think of it, it actually makes a lot of sense. A lot of the characters now a days seem unrealistic, and boarding upon obsessed. The media these days....

Many thanks for this. I was not familiar with the Bechdel test although I hope I have always followed its rules.  
                                    
                                    Sadly, I  think most thrillers and mysteries on Wattpad might also fail the test.
@MyztikalTearz I agree with that, I feel that when authors write fill in chapters there isn't anything substantial within them
                                    
                                    @BlurryWords I find them one dimensional and not well written.
@BatmansxWife :D
                                    
                                    Thanks for adding it to your library by the way.
