Thinkin' Thursday - Hat Love
My head is too small for the adult hat!! Not kidding. The paper boy with the button in the center and the cocky, I'm so cute, brim falls right over my ears. The winter knit with the top bobbin flops below the brow. And really, sombreros just overwhelm the rest of my body.
When my kids were little, I could wear their hats. But I have never been able to wear the ones made for 'the big kids'. I'd even do a bonnet if I thought it wouldn't slip into the ridiculous. But alas, small head = small features = no hats for me. : (
But, that doesn't mean my MCs can't embrace my hat love. Through them I am a vicarious cap wearin' kind of gal. And - I am grateful.
So here's the que-ey: What things do your characters do for you? When mining attributes, how do you apply your own make-up to your literary friends?
