No One is Infallible

The probability of someone watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your actions.

Read in The Rules of Thumb blog.

I like when characters in the book I’m reading are less than perfect. One great way to illustrate this is with humour, having them drop something. slip and fall, or other things which happen to everyone. It may not do much for the plot of your story but it does a lot to bring a character to life and help readers identify with a character that seems a lot more human and fallible.

Write a scene that brings out your character’s humanity while making the reader laugh with them.
