Christine's Top Thirteen Reasons For A Character To Be Rejected

I am intrigued by the unlucky 13 concept. And since I am floundering to write a third article on rejection I looked for a different path. What things are going to keep our characters from love. So let's see…

1. The hero is too old for the heroine

2. Hero or heroine are just too bossy

3. Age difference

4. Too serious one is no fun

5. Airhead/perhaps silliness or stupidity override everything else

6. Right place--wrong time

7. Wrong time--right place

8. Pretending to be someone you are not

9. Feuding families

10. Parents don't approve

11. Different lifestyle (cowboy vs the city girl)

12. Children

13. Animals

…feel free to add to this list.

What a fun post! How about no spark? Or commitment/loyalty to someone else?
