on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Beautiful People - February Edition

Welcome back to the February edition of Beautiful People! Beautiful People is a monthly blog thing designed by Georgie Penn and I to help you get to know your characters. You can click here to read the first post, or click here to view the FAQ.

We've tried to keep these neutral so you can answer them regardless of genre. However, if you do write fantasy or sci/fi, try to adapt them so that they do fit your genre, or pose the question as if your character was in a modern world.

Oh, and feel free to submit your own questions as well. Just leave them in a comment on either my blog or Georgie's.

So, without further ado, here's the questions for this round of Beautiful People.

1. If your character could be played by any actor, who would it be?
2. Does your character have a specific theme song?
3. What’s their worst childhood memory?
4. If your character had a superpower, what would it be?
5. If your character crashed on an island with a bunch of other people, how would your character help the group survive?
6. Are they married? If not, do they someday wish to be?
7. What is a cause they would die for?
8. Would they rather die fighting valiantly, or quietly at home?
9. If someone walked up to them and told them they were the child of the prophecy, would they believe them?
10. Do they prefer the country or the city?

  1. Yay! Made my day when I saw this was up - I'll be back to do this soon!

    1. And consequently it made my day that it made your day! Er... wait. That's confusing.

  2. Is it okay to make this interview for more than one of my characters?

    1. Hi Joy! Yes, it is definitely okay -- thank you for asking! Actually, I was considering doing this for more than one of my characters myself. ;) Feel free to do whatever you wish.

  3. Hi Sky,

    Oh thanks so much for your encouraging comment on my blog, and I'm glad I can do Beautiful People for more than one of my characters =D. I've been writing up a character profile post first, since none of my readers no who my characters are, and then I'll Lord willing do the BP posts =D.

    In His love,

  4. Oops! I just realized I linked to my blog, not my specific post. I've fixed that! :D Thanks for hosting!
