Anonymous asked: “Could I ask for advice about writing an unobservant character? All the characters I write are really observant people. I’m trying to write more variable characters, so I was curious if you have any advice for writing characters who aren’t that great at reading body language or miss things?”
A first person narrator by default is sort of asking to be an observer of the story. Whether they are particularly observant people or not is another thing up for debate, but they will likely still tell the story with enough detail that the reader won’t feel like they’re missing out. If they aren’t naturally observant though, likely they’ll become an unreliable narrator.
Looking back on my designs for this mascot character, I found I really enjoyed some of the drawings I did, and liked how the character turned out in the end, and before I know it I’m making some kind of informative tutorial.
