Thinkin' Thursday - If You Really Knew Me
But, I do have teenagers. And, I got sucked into a few episodes of 'If You Really Knew Me'. And, just so ya know, I bawled like a beauty queen on crowning eve every single time. I can't help myself. Kleenex is my only defense against the emotional onslaught.
This got me thinking. As we fashion are characters, we detail their individual biographies. We know everything about them. But, we don't spill it onto every page. There are things that are never translated. So, if you were to pick a character, who would it be? And, what one thing would you want readers to know that is never typed into the tale?
As for me, one of my characters has a quirk where she pinches the inside of her palm whenever she gets stressed. This is borne out of her insecurities & a need to exert emotional control.
