Saturday Series: WIP Joy Questions Pt. 1

*This post occurred before I changed the WIP title and Ghuli's name to Jonnie*

(A post on Saturday, what??)

RA Black posted these questions on her blog, and I thought it would be an awesome thing to do for my WIP, The Crystal Bearer! But as I also like to be short and sweet, I'm going to break these up over the next few weeks.

Answers for questions 1 - 5.

1. Describe your story as   Ghuli   meets   Andyrsn  .

Ghuli had not only just been forced from the only home she had ever known by a rampaging metal army, but then she was shipwrecked and lost everyone she loved overnight. Andyrsn and his brothers found her washed up on shore, and this actually begins a cycle of the two of them saving each other.

2. Why you love your protagonist.

Ghuli is in that awkward 17-year-old phase of her life where she tries to hold onto childhood, but she inevitably grows up before our eyes on paper. She's also a very sweet girl who just wants to be happy.

3. A side character you love and why.

Cyan is my favorite side character. He's a hard-ass with a soft spot when it comes to Ghuli, and he will do anything to protect her. I loved getting to write in some vulnerable moments for him.

4. Why you love your antagonist.

She's a broken creature with some pretty good reasons to wreak havoc, though normal people wouldn't act on the urges. I don't want to give too much away, but we do get to see she had a redeeming side once upon a time.

5. You hope someday your book gets a review that says...

"I've been waiting forever to read a book like this, and Debra delivered!"

If you're a writer, I think you should give these questions a go! They really make you think. :)

Fun! I remember you sharing these questions on Twitter, so it's cool to see you answering them now. Love the sound of your characters already; I'm especially intrigued by the antagonist!
