Huge Laurie plays Dr. House on Fox and the show is a hit. Here is one reason why and what it says about protagonists.
Hello, bloggers, writers and my Flash Fiction Fanatics. What makes a compelling protagonist?
When I was growing up as a comic book reading kid, I always liked Batman better than Superman and I never knew why, not until I grew up and started writing short stories and trying to create my own protagonists.
Now, the Fox show House has a compelling protagonist.
The reason Huge Laurie’s character can carry a popular series is because Dr. House has deep personal issues to deal with beyond what he has to deal with as a doctor.
Give your protagonists internal conflict and they will be more interesting.
