Nurture Your Idiosyncrasies

Another day, another advice column that centered on one person's opinions on the finer points of characterizations.

The one item that struck me was the author's encouragement to allow characters their idiosyncrasies. Instead, I believe we need to nurture our own and transfer that understanding to our writing overall.

It also helps to recognize and accept the vagaries (the whimsy and the unusual) around you that drive you to write.
