Cassie Mae was awesome enough to open the link again. Yeah, she's a rock star. You can check her blog out - Reading, Writing, and Lovin' it!
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?
So, even though I'm a day late to this blogfest, my character begged to do this. I couldn't deny her that, now could I?
ME: Everyone, please meet Olive. She's my MC's best friend in my current YA WIP.
OLIVE: *Waves and puts on some lip gloss.*
ME: Uh, Olive. They can't see you.
OLIVE: Oh, my bad. So, you said you have some questions for me?
ME: Yes, just a few. What's your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?
OLIVE: I worry what others think of me. I wish I was more like my best friend, Kara. She doesn’t care about the opinions of others. But I do. It’s not a secret, but it’s not like I broadcast my insecurities.
ME: What do people believe about you that is false?
OLIVE: That my parents bought a lake cottage. I started the rumor and now people are planning to have parties this summer at a place that doesn’t exist. Talk about a huge backfire.
ME: What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?
OLIVE: *Removes a nail file from her humungo purse.* Kara thinks I’m always trying to be someone that I’m not. I’ve told her before that I just want our senior year to be kickass, that’s all. So what if I dress different than I did last year? What’s wrong with that? I happen to like looking nice.
ME: What would the same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?
OLIVE: Kara would say that, no matter what, she can count on me. We’ve had this connection of sorts, ever since we were little.
ME: What do you want most? What will you do to get it?
OLIVE: I want to be popular. I mean, it’s not like I get picked on or anything. Well, except by Simone, but she’s just mean. I have friends. It’s just, well, I want to be remembered. As for what I’ll do to get it? Ask me in a few weeks. I have some things in mind. It’s going to be epic. *scratches her head* Hopefully, not an epic fail.
ME: Okay, well that scares me. But thanks for taking time to share with us.
OLIVE: No problem. *waves*
How about you guys? Care to share your character who is giving you trouble?
