Will this about cover it? This should cover it just fine, Lottie!

I just love Lottie’s adorable little jump here!!!

I love how Tiana was never too proud to accept help from friends, and the movie didn’t show this as making her any less hard working or devoted. I think that’s an important lesson.

Similarly, Lottie was always giving and loving, even though she was by all counts supposedly a spoiled brat. This is truly one of my favorite Disney friendships.

Anonymous asked: I want to write a female MC who is arrogant, cold, and sharp-tongued. But I don't want people to hate her. I've seen many things with male characters like this and people adore them, but never females?

thewritingcafe:

I think there are two reasons for why people favor male characters like this over female characters:

  1. Sexism.
  2. There are an abundance of male characters like this and when writers realize there are no female characters of this type, they try too hard to write one and put too much focus on the character’s traits. This leads to a neglect of character development and depth. Because of this, many of these characters end up flat and static, which leads to the reader not liking them.

This happens a lot when female characters first enter roles that have been traditionally reserved for males. The writers don’t think about writing a person. They think about writing an archetype, a stereotype, or a set of fixed traits. This also leads to writers neglecting any change in personality or emotion for these characters. With all their focus on certain traits, they forget that sometimes these characters have an emotional or weak moment that makes them more sympathetic and lovable.

That being said, you really just have to make this character developed and well written. Everyone goes through changes and everyone has weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Make the reader feel bad for this character a few times.

And, most importantly, give your character a reason for being like this. The lack of reason is not specific to female characters of this type. It’s just a common element missing from characters who have issues with everyone around them. Back story can change the way the reader looks at a character, which can lead to the reader liking them.
