I wonder what a perfect day is like for you or would you even recognize it when you saw it? Are you so busy feeling sorry for yourself that you’ve forgotten what it is like to be happy? Can you tell me about one absolutely perfect day in your life?

Dear Plant Kid,
It is plants you’re obsessed with right and not bugs? Because I sense you going off to the buggy world a little bit too much. I know if you have plants you have bugs but can we just think of them as spices and not a main course?

Even though you’ve been pushed to third or fourth on my list doesn’t mean I’m not still thinking about you, jotting down ideas as they come to me. But you know where I’m stumped. You have to tell me what really happened with your mother’s boyfriend and you have to quit lying to me about your sister.

Welcome to the part of my world where I talk about you before you are totally real to me. I’m not sure where fall on my list behind Flyboy. We’ll just have to see how quickly you come to life. What I want to know about you first is where did you get that giant chip on your shoulder? I already know what you do about it but I want to go back to where it all began.
Author who has no idea where you came from only what you did that started it all
Okay, from someone who’s spending more time talking with her characters these days, how do you know when they’re lying and we’re not just not-accepting? 🙂
Oooh, good question.
I don’t know that I will know for sure until I get to that part of his story but as I explore him he still won’t meet my eyes so I know he’s hiding something.
Guess that’s what we go with. Latest char told me all about this past that I couldn’t believe. Then I realized it sounded a lot like another character. And he told me about a goal that didn’t seem like his. And I realized it was matching my hero’s. I’m learning he’s big into distraction, and I think he may be trying to distract me.
Yep, they are good at that distracting game! It might be interesting if he is mirroring your hero but with different results.
