Hello, readers of my blog, however few you may be! I have found another tag on Whispers of the Wind and have decided to use it!
What is your name?
Does that really matter?
What do you like most about writing?
Complete and total control of my characters. (Evil laughter.) Seriously, bringing ideas and thoughts in my head to life is probably the best part. That and if I look up writing websites, they will often mention books that I've never heard of. This is the way I heard about Hunger Games, Blood of Kings, and so many other wonderful books.
How many books are you writing or have written?
Have written? I've lost track. Am writing? Not sure exactly. I try to focus on one story, then some other idea comes in and starts making unreasonable demands for attention.
Now, do this quiz for one of your favorite characters you have come up with for a book.
Princess Levina (I would post a picture, but I don't really have any since I haven't started her story yet.)
Well, when the story starts out, she's probably ten or eleven. Then, after the first bit, I skip ahead several years because what happens in those years isn't important. I haven't quite figured out how many years yet, though, but it's safe to say no older than sixteen at any point during the story.
Golden. Her hair is very soft and wavy.
Blue. A deep, vivid, expressive blue, while everyone else in her land has hazel or brown eyes.
No exact height, but she's small at the start of the book. She grows larger toward the end.
She's very slender, particularly when she's wearing a corset.
Biggest Pet Peeve
People who, for some reason, seem to think that girls make easier targets than boys. She's a sweet person, but people who think she's an easy target are sadly mistaken. (She carries a small knife in part one, but at the beginning of part two carries none. That changes, though.)
Light blues and dark blues - blues that are in between aren't her thing. Her favorite blue of all, though, is the blue of a stream in the forest, with dappled sunlight sparkling off of it.
Prince Quinlan. He's a bit of a wimp, and their uncle uses him after stealing the throne.
King Ahar and Queen Alina. Queen Alina died when she was four, and the king remarried. Levina's stepmother is named Oriana. I've been considering giving her a half brother by Queen Oriana, but I'm not sure about it yet. I'd probably make him bolder than Quinlan, which would make it more difficult for Levina's uncle (and more interesting to read.)
Anybody like this one? Or have any other tags to suggest to me on characters and stories? I'd welcome them!
