Happy first Wednesday of March, my friends! This week's topic is: Characters who remind me of myself and why. As a voracious reader, I've seen myself as the character in many stories. Yet the most important ones I can recall are a few within my books. I've woven a smidgen of my personality into these women. Is it planned? Nope. There are three that stand out immediately. The other character is not one of my own that I've written. And here they are...
The heroine, Brigid O'Neill in Dragon Knight's Sword. She has a spirited temperament and is known to often spout, "Hell's bells!" I tend to do the same, and you can ask my family (if you ever meet them) about my lively nature.
The oldest (and leader) of the Dragon Knights, Angus MacKay in Dragon Knight's Shield. Since he was the oldest sibling, he was consumed with guilt for failing his family on the death of his sister. I can totally relate to this! As the oldest in my family (two sisters and one brother), I had to set the example. So you can imagine my internal struggle when I did something wrong. Trust me, my parents reminded me.
The heroine, Rose MacLaren in Destiny of a Warrior. She reminded me of myself with her curious mind for archaeology. If I wasn't a writer, I'd love to be in this profession. The past and history has always intrigued me.
Scarlett O'Hara! OMG! Her perseverance to survive is one that I see in myself. No matter the difficult situations in my life, I've kept moving forward. There's always another plan, another goal, another brand new day.
Do you see yourself in any characters? Do share! Then hop on over here to see what the other authors are saying.
See you next week! xo
