Discription words

Dear authors,

Adjectives. Adjectives are key to a good character. Adjectives are how you describe your character to the world.

Adjectives that shouldn’t be used to describe your character: bad, sexy, hunky, hot, gorgeous, etc., you get the idea.

As soon as I see those words. I stop reading. If you can’t come up with a better word to describe a character than hot, like that is the only thing they have going for them, I can already tell that your character is going to suck.

How about these?

Caring, lovable, provocative, damaged, confused, dangerous, insecure, funny, temperamental, uptight, trustworthy, .

If the only redeeming quality of your character is that they are sexy, you seriously have to rethink the usefulness of your character.
