Character Personality Traits List

I use this personality traits list often. As a writer, my brain often needs a little jump start to think of words to describe my character’s personality. Indeed, there are times when a blank stare accompanies the blank brain. I initially grabbed the dictionary or clicked on the thesaurus for new and unique words to use in my writing. After making these lists, I glance through them until something resonates in my writing soul. Likewise, I’ve found these lists to be a tremendous help and time-saving tool.
