Character Eccentricities

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

With the passing of Gene Wilder this week, I can’t help but think of one of my favorite roles for him: Willy Wonka. Wilder excelled at playing strange characters but his portrayal of Willy Wonka, for me, always reflected that line between eccentric and unstable. One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from him in this role: “We are the music-makers and we are the dreamers of dreams.” That quote and his performance of “Pure Imagination” are always moments that have made me want to write. Write something that shows some of your characters’ eccentricities. What weird things about your characters make them unique or original?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
