W is for Whimsical.
Whimsical, one of my favorite character traits. In fact, its about seventy five percent of my own genetic makeup( no self love intended). Hey, who knew? When it comes to my WIP, I've always tried to throw in a whimsical character. Add a little spunk somewhere in the mix of the story. Finding the voice for those characters is easy. I just steal or blend a few personalities together from the people I know, hoping to form a snarky little entertaining bubble. At least I hope its entertaining, but sometimes those snarky little comments in a story can be distracting. I know, I do this myself. Where do you draw the line? How do you balance your snark?
