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.
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.
Soooo! Does any one else have a friend - or sister - like Rena?
Yay! You joined! I love that Rena swears and sounds like she doesn't take crap from anyone. My type of character! :-)ReplyDelete
I figured you would. She my type of girl too.Delete
I like the sister. She is to the point. Great voice.ReplyDelete
Thanks! That's just the tip of the iceberg as they say. She's a hot head.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
She is the younger one of the two but only by a few minutes. They even each other out. Thanks for coming by!Delete
Great job! Our sisters are a bit alike! Except Kella is usually the one with the temper.ReplyDelete
That's what I was thinking. Something about sisters makes the dynamic more appealing to me. Ying and yang.Delete
She's a tough one and definitely has her own unique voice. Nice interview!ReplyDelete
Thanks! She is definitely her own person. Hard-headed.Delete
She certainly sounds tough and self confident! I like the sister idea too!ReplyDelete
She sure is. Thanks for stopping by. I love my fellow bloggers.Delete
What a feisty character. Awesome.ReplyDelete
Thanks Clarrisa! I appreciate the feedback!Delete
I love her! Great voice and it's clear she's got moxie. What a fun character to write :)ReplyDelete
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!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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!Delete
Love the character. You're story sounds really interesting. Can't wait to read more!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I hope readers find it as interesting.Delete
Great voice and personality! Awesome interview :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! Flad you liked her. It was a hard charater to write.Delete
So cool! I love her attitude! And I love that she is brutally honest. That trait is so hard to get used to, but I love it! She's awesome! Love it!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you soooo much! And thanks for coming to visit.Delete
Attitude is awesome here! She sounds like a raging ball of fire... which hopefully won't explode out of her fingertips, lol.ReplyDelete
Hey, have you read my wip? Your play on words might be exactly true. I love this Hearing Voices Challenge! ThanksDelete
Rena is one tough cookie :) I lover her spunk and spirit! You write her very well!ReplyDelete
Awww, Thanks Angela! She's starting to wear on me.Delete
I like her!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
She is definitely both!Delete
You've left so many awesome comments on my blog its about time I get over here and leave some on yours!!ReplyDelete
LOVE the attitude. So well done. The voice in general is awesome. I so want to read more!
Well Kara & Tristan are awesome characters!Delete
Thanks, she's a handful. But so fun to write.
What an interesting character. Just gotta love a girl who swears. I am a new follower from the bloghop. I love the design of your blog.ReplyDelete
I do love a swearer...seeings how I swear A LOT!Delete
Thanks! I did my own page. Header and all. Your page is just as cool if not cooler than mine! We have similar colors.
I just wish I could figure out how to do a "Gram My Button" thiny. A friend tried to help me out but I must be too slow to catch on. lmbo!
