R is for Reckless #AtoZchallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of character flaws – something all characters need.

R is for Reckless. This character is similar to the impulsive one but instead of doing things with little thought, the reckless character is marked by lack of proper caution. They do not think of the consequences.

“Nothing bad is gonna happen. It never does.”

This might be their mantra. They may think others worry too much. They might be a danger to themselves and others. They may know their behavior is dangerous but still pursue it anyway.

On the plus side, these characters may be determined, decisive and brave. They may provide fun and excitement for the people around them.

Looking for an example of a reckless character? Martin Riggs from the Lethal Weapon movie series is an excellent example. He often completely disregards his own safety in the pursuit of criminals.

    What a good idea for your theme! I am very far from reckless… except, I suppose there are many ways of being reckless, perhaps I am in my decisions to take on too much work! ~Liz http://www.poetryroundabout.com
