Naughty Characters

Naughty characters by nature, aren't loved by the majority.

However, a large part of writing a great book is about having the skill to create engaging, memorable characters. Honourable characters lend hope and restore faith in human nature. Wicked ones spell doom but also create a balance to the story, instilling that all-important ‘conflict’ to the plot.

The funny guys hang around the periphery to inject a bit of fun, freedom and laughter. These are all straight- forward traits and are somewhat easy to create and handle throughout the book/film. A more difficult job is to craft characters like Will and Grace’s ‘Jack,’ who’re naughty yet loveable. I admire writers who can perfectly sum up and maintain this balance with their naughty characters and 'good' ones. They’ve enchanted us with these naughty characters from the days of Tom and Jerry (when that wicked little mouse got away with the most criminal of RSPCA’s violations), to today’s Greg House. Here is an article to demonstrate this trend.

What do you think of naughty characters? Do you think this article sum them up well?
