Today’s reader topic comes from Hank T. Cannon:
How do you as a reader feel about the ‘competence’ of a character. If someone is supposed to be good at something, do you expect them to be good at it on the page, or is it fine to simply be good at it? If it is something that has an effect on the plot and they are noticeably incompetent, or incurious within the realm of that supposed competency, does it affect your enjoyment?
Writers, feel free to join the chat, but please do not reference your own books directly, as this is a reader topic. Thanks!
