Time To Write: Show Your Character’s Biggest Flaw

Last week’s prompt was Show Your Character’s Biggest Fear.

Nthato wrote a wonderful piece over at his blog, A-Scribe To Describe.

Thanks, Nthato!

This week’s prompt is:

Everyone has flaws whether they like to admit it or not. Sometimes we don’t even know we have a certain flaw until someone points it out to you.

What’s your main character’s biggest flaw? Do they know about it? Are they okay with it?

Feel free to post your story in the comments below. I’d love to see what you come up with. If you respond by Thursday, August 18, I’ll post your story and a link to your blog for next week’s Time to Write prompt.

Happy writing!

  1. Well, my main characters flaw is she is too trusting. She thinks pretty much the best of most anyone “whatever they tell her.” She is aware this is often her downfall, I think this hurts her, and it most defininatly effects her in the book. I chose this flaw, reading another post saying a good way to make your character more unique and not like you, is to give her a flaw or quality the exact opposite of you. I don’t trust people easily. So, in her I emphasized that she does. Thanks

Let me know what you think!
