HAPPY TWO MONTH BLOGGING ANNIVERSARY TO ME!!! That's right Bloggers it's official I've been blogging for two months and I'm elated to have met so many wonderful people! You have all truly inspired me in one way or another! I was able to finish my first draft and now I'm on to revising and I have all of you pushing me along the way! THANK YOU!!! Thank you for all the wonderful sweet comments you give me throughout the week as well! You all keep me motivated!! Oh and I also noticed I hit the 400 Follower mark, thank you to all of you who comment daily, and those who comment when you can, your love is appreciated, and I hope you feel the love back!!
Okay now to todays actual post, Q... this is a tough one, or is it?
Everyone has a quirk, and if you don't your lying to yourself! As writers I believe we have many, I also believe it is what makes us who we are. Have quirks about ourselves gives us the opportunity to add even more quirkiness to our characters and to our stories.
My main characters name is Lauren, she is your typical over-dramatic 17 year old who always complains that her life sucks. Her number one complain... the fact that her perfectly manicured parents produced her and rather than gracing her with the traditional good lucks they gave her bright red hair and really skinny frail legs. Her quirkiness comes out in her attitude and how she copes with certain situations. She ends up falling into the Traveler's world where she will have to grow up and forget about how awful she thought her life was and start realizing that if she isn't careful it could only get worse. Her funk and sarcastic personality makes for a little quirkiness when she meets a boy. Strange habits begin to unfold that she didn't even realize about herself.
So I'm sure your wondering what quirks I have... so I'll share a few:
I travel with a new toothbrush always
I like to do a few jumping jacks to help wake up in the morning
-- My brain isn't functioning or I'd list more --
So what are a few of your quirks... what about your MC's?
Oh and just to try this out for size... does anyone have any questions they'd like to ask me? That was my original Q but Quirks sounded like so much fun! I am open for questions though, if anyone wants to know more about my life, blogging or writing ask away and I'll post when I'll answer them on tomorrow's blog post!
