Characters on the couch



I’m Hearing Voices
Monday was day one of three for I'm Hearing Voices Character Blogfest. Cassie Mae was awesome enough to open the link again. You can check her blog out - Reading, Writing, and Lovin' it!

RULES:
Have one of your characters answer the following questions (to make this work to your benefit, choose a character who is the hardest for you to write :) Max 250 words (Not including the questions—only the answers).

What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?
What do people believe about you that is false?
What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?
What would the same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?
What do you want most? What will you do to get it?


I’m a day late but NOT a buck short. Cassie Mae let me join in anyways. She’s full of awesomeness!

Me: Hello everyone. I want you to meet Rena. She's the sister to the protagonist in my WIP.

Rena: Whateva


Me: What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?

Rena: That’s easy; I swear a lot. Oh and I can’t control my damn powers. Sometimes they work, sometimes… not so much. *she looks down at her hands, wiggling her fingers* My family knows. *she rolls her eyes*

            Me: I take it you don’t get along with your family?

            Rena: Never knew I had a sister or a mother until recently.

Me: What do people believe about you that is false?

Rena: They think I’m like them. I mean, I am, but I’m not. Not DNA wise, anyways.

Me: What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?

Rena: Fatal … as in death? Sheesh! Can we not think about that?  The closest person I’d consider a friend would be my sister and she’d probably say my temper would be my down fall.

Me: What would the same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?

Rena: Maybe, hmm, - *she opens her mouth to say something* - No not that either. This is hard. I’m a great person, I’m just, well, a little crass. I’m hoping she say my ability to be brutally honest. Everyone knows what their getting with me.

Me: What do you want most? What will you do to get it?

Rena: To help my sister stop some stupid b-

Me: Make it PG please! *she shoots me a look*

Rena: - to stop some stupid witch from killing us. I will get to live for one reason and two, so do you.

Me: Well then. I hope you and your sister kill her first. Thanks for coming in a chatting with me.

Rena: No prob. Everyone else is too afraid to talk to me.

Soooo! Does any one else have a friend - or sister - like Rena?

  3. Rena is an awesome kid sister. She wouldn't be if she weren't a tad annoying (which is how her older sis probably views her). I like her. She has spunk!

    1. She is the younger one of the two but only by a few minutes. They even each other out. Thanks for coming by!

  4. Great job! Our sisters are a bit alike! Except Kella is usually the one with the temper.

    1. That's what I was thinking. Something about sisters makes the dynamic more appealing to me. Ying and yang.

    1. She's hard to write in the way of finding the perfect moments for her to soften up but she's easy because my inner b@!$h loves her!

  9. Rena sounds like she can kick butt! I feel bad for her that people are afraid to be near her. My MC has the same problem.

    1. Take the fact that she can't control her powers with the other fact that she is standoffish; I might think twice about hanging w/ her too. Glad you liked her!

  15. I can sense a lot of conflict in her character and everything around her. She must be a lot of fun (but still sometimes frustrating) to write!
