For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of character flaws – something all characters need.
H is for Humorless. This character lacks a sense of humor. Many consider this person dull and boring. They don’t laugh at jokes and take things way too seriously. A smile rarely crosses their face.
This type of person works best alone and can be trusted to follow through on their responsibilities.
An example would be Darry Curtis from The Outsiders. Since his parents’ deaths, he is responsible for his two younger brothers. He doesn’t have time for any fun activities, yet he is reliable, which makes him a good caretaker but makes it difficult to connect with his brothers, adding tension to the story.
