A strong female character in fiction is often seen as a set personality - cold, vicious, doesn't take any BS type of girl. But why?
I found this while looking around, and decided to try it out using the main character of my current novel-in-progress. This is from his character at the start of the story.
During this episode, Arthur finds a magic horn that lets him talk to his dead father, Uther, but accidentally releases his father's ghost onto Camelot. Or at least that's what Gauis says the problem is. But I don't think that was Uther's ghost.
The number one problem with romance, as I said above, is when the chemistry seems forced. When two characters are forced together for no reason other than because they need to be in a relationship, it comes across as... well, forced. Force relationship are dry, and much worse than letting characters stay single.
