Tuesday Tales: Worst Qualities

I'm back with another question for one of my characters! This past week has been quite wild for me, and as I schedule these posts, I'm barely awake (it's barely 10pm), so I hope to get this done so you'll be looking at it in the morning!

This time around, I used Writeworld to find a question for my main character Ghuli*. There are some great questions there, so I chose one that struck me as a good one for Ghuli to answer.

7. What does your character think is his or her worst quality?

Hello again.

My worst quality? Oh my. Well, to be honest, I am a bit impulsive. If I want to do something or go somewhere, I tend to follow my feelings. I am certain this frustrates Cyan, howbeit. In fact, I know it does. I would also say at times, I am clumsy, and to be both impulsive and clumsy is not the best of things. Cyan has had to patch me up many times after falling from the trees around our home.

(Let me sneak question 8 into this as well: What do other people think your character’s worst quality is?) Cyan?

Well, what did she say?

The clumsiness I could deal with. The impulsiveness is indeed the problem, especially when you tie it in with her affinity for not listening. I will give her an order, and she follows it for, perhaps, two minutes. The next thing I know, she's out of range of earshot, getting herself tangled in willow switches or limping back home because a branch gave way. 'Tis exhausting beyond measure. I imagine it will get better as she gets older. One can only hope.

Poor Cyan. My worst quality is that I get angry or annoyed really quickly. What's yours?

Well, that's what she has Cyan for - to reel her in and patch her up.

Poor Cyan indeed. These rebellious young ladies in fiction these days.

Procrastination? I don't always get annoyed easily but if you get me mad enough I can go off on you. Mainly because I don't like getting upset in the first place so when I do then I'm doubly mad at the fool who caused it.

Don't worry, Ghuli. Being impulsive is often a prerequisite for protagonists! :P
