I love quirky characters, but they're hard to write. Quirky can quickly turn into annoying.
I've always loved Amanda Quick's heroines because they leap off the page.
An awesomely quirky character is someone you remember years later. You think about the character and smile. My absolutely favorite quirky character is Kate (played by Meg Ryan) in the movie French Kiss.
Do you like quirky characters? Do you write them? If someone wrote your autobiography, would you be awesomely quirky?
