I have compiled these lists to help you select the character traits you need for your novel. Traits are formed by a person’s behaviour and attitude to others. We all have good and bad character traits and we should remember this when we describe people.
Every character will have positive and negative personality traits. Make sure you have created real people rather than caricatures by giving your cast a selection of both.
Have fun, and happy writing.
