Four Primary Reasons Characters Don't Work

Sometimes a book falls flat.  We read for emotions...which means we read for character.  When editing for my clients, I notice a few things about characters that don't quite work.
I found 4 main reasons characters don't work for me:

- Generic action that could be performed by any character.
- Average dialogue.
- Slow opening scene.
- Uninteresting situation/premise.
Check for these things and maybe it will help improve your chances for a great sale, screenplay or novel...!
