CHARACTERS ARE A CHEF'S SALAD



“People aren’t either wicked or noble,” the hook-handed man said. “They’re like chef's salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict.”

                      -  Fernald (the hook-handed man) from The Grim Grotto, book eleven in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.


Are your characters cheesy, nutty, meaty and spicy? Are they mired in mango and jalapeno situations?

That is a brilliant quote. I see why you selected it.

While listening to the audio book the penny dropped with a resounding splash. I can apply that to my writing, I thought.

Another reason to love Fernald ;).
I've always preferred his sister, though.

Yes, his sister is pretty smart and had to make some tough choices.

Aye! Actually, when I think about it, she might've been my favourite character of the series. She was charming and smart and had guts and her flaws made her likeable somehow.
Teehee, I feel like doing some fanart now ;).
