Hey, it's my birthday!!
But blogs need to be posted, so away I go (I've scheduled this anyway).
Some time ago, I opened up the floor for readers to ask questions of my characters. I ran out of them, and so I found a website filled with questions from the Gotham Character Course called The Writer's Toolbox. Interesting questions, so I thought I would start with this one: Where [do you go when you are] angry?
Who wants to answer?
Brodie: I was wondering if you do go anywhere. You always seem angry.
Ghuli*: I used to lock myself in my room and throw my pillows about. It did nothing but exhaust me, and I would fall asleep.
Brodie: I like to go out and shoot at painted targets. It helps curb my need to shoot the real ones.
Cyan: I am not always angry, thank you.
Brodie: Did what I said anger you, Cyan?
Ghuli: Cyan has a short temper, but it's short-lived as well. His general disposition is more...frustrated than angry.
Cyan: I can answer for myself...'Tis a little embarrassing, howbeit...I sit in the corner.
Ghuli: When we were younger, Sir Aleksandyr used to make me leave the room when he did that...I suppose it was because I was usually to blame.
Cyan: This is true, but I sat in corners before you were of walking age. It has always helped me clear my head and calm down.
Brodie: ...Is that why you were sitting there the other day?
Cyan: You were why I was sitting there the other day.
They're quite a pair.
*This post occurred before I changed Ghuli's name to Jonnie*
LOL. Cyan made me laugh today. Brodie can definitely grate on someone's nerves with this conversation.
Happy Birthday! ~\o/~
And LOL, love seeing your characters interact in their attempt to answer this question. So fun!
Hehe I like to write exchanges between the two of them.
Lol Thank you!
Happy Birthday! Great exchange too. Has me giggling :)
