Memo: To All Characters

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’d like each of you to tell me one thing that you love. (For those of you from fantasy worlds, or otherwise unfamiliar with this holiday, please see the attached pamphlet.) Before you worrisome types stress out, this is not supposed to be the thing you love most. Just say one random thing that makes your heart go all a-flutter.

Those who participate will receive a choice of the following: 1.) a fancy cupcake, 2.) a foot massage, or 3.) a free pass on one of these little activities in the future. But of course I’m just kidding about #3. Some of you are so gullible… Read the rest of this entry

My Characters Ordering Winter Beverages

Standard


Well, I don’t know about you guys, but my corner of the world has been feeling the full wrath of January weather this past week. As a daydreaming topic one chilly morning, I asked all of my characters what their favorite hot beverage was. Here are some of the answers. As usual, my alter-ego Hannah interjected whenever it suited her. Her words are in the [brackets].

Rodney from School Spirit 

“Hot apple cider. With a cinnamon stick, please!”

~*~

Lisa from Ball Girl 

“Chai tea with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream melted in it.” Read the rest of this entry

My Characters being Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

In the spirit of the Holiday, I asked all of my characters what they were thankful for. The little interjections inside the square brackets are from my Alter-Ego, Hannah, keeping my people honest.

Matt from The TimeWarp Bill

“Man, I don’t know… Is it corny if I put down the stuff that happened in my story?”

[Hannah: very corny, but please go on.]

“Well, it sort of changed my mind about some things. So that’s good and all. So quit making fun of me.”

[Hannah: Not making fun of you, Sweetie. I like corny.] Read the rest of this entry

Drabble: My Characters Playing “Never Have I Ever”

Standard

This post features the following characters from my stories:
Matt from The TimeWarp Bill
Lisa from Ball Girl
Wistal from The Suicide Game
Zen from No More Heroes 
No Spoilers 

Pardon me while I ask my characters to do random things for my own amusement 🙂 As usual, I asked my alter-ego Hannah to be the moderator for these little events. This is slightly different from other drabbles in that the characters are completely OOS (Out of Story), meaning that they are fully aware of their status as story characters. Enjoy! 

~*~

“Sooo… can we start yet, or what?” Matt asked after making a paper airplane out of his game rules and watching it take a disappointingly short flight across the room.

“Hannah said there were supposed to be four of us,” Lisa said as she read her own rules a third time, even though the game wasn’t all that difficult to understand.

A voice called from the hallway, “I found him,” a moment before Hannah led the somewhat disgruntled man inside and pointed sternly at the empty space on the couch. Read the rest of this entry

My Characters as Flowers

Standard

In honor of it finally being springtime (Yay! I can’t even tell you how much yay!!) I took a nice long walk and found flowers that reminded me of various characters.

I normally link to the stories, but… I’m feeling lazy just now (I should be writing the climax of a novella this weekend, so I’ve been writing in high gear for a few weeks now. Rewarding. But exhausting.) So, if anyone’s interested in reading any of the stories, I have the links collected here.

Okay. And now for the pretty things.


 

Kaleb – Loved by Numbers

Kaleb Flower

This flower just seemed like such an attention magnet. It could be in a garden of ten other varieties, and yet that would be the one I’d notice, and I’ll bet the flower would just love that. Very much like Kaleb’s attitude pre-story.

Scenelette: My Characters Watching the Olympics

Standard

This story features the following characters from my stories:
Kaleb from Loved by Numbers
Lisa from Ball Girl
Trevor from School Spirit

I’ve found several definitions for “Drabble,” none of which truly matched mine, but I’m going to use it anyway because that’s what I’ve always called bits of writing such as this. Here’s what the word means to me:

Drabbles are pieces of writing that I do for the sole purpose of learning more about my characters, and are not intended to be part of their actual stories. In this particular type of drabble, I put characters from different stories together, give them an activity (which may or may not make sense in their world), and observe how they interact.

I wrote this one (shocker!) while the Winter Olympics were on.

“When is the hockey game coming back?” Kaleb asked from the corner of the couch where he was sprawling in his nest of candy bar wrappers.
