Beautiful People : For Writers and Dreamers
The answers for these questions are for one of my main characters: Christopher. He is a detective and I need to flesh him out a little more. Aside from the six pack and a good tan, I think he has to be a lot more than just eye- candy to be a detective… so without further ado…
What are they addicted to/can’t live without?
He is addicted to prescription medication, at this rate I think it should be a sleeping pill rather than a painkiller. I haven’t decided yet, but he cannot live without *hmmm* going to the gym.
Name 3 positive and 3 negative qualities about your character.
3 Positives : courageous, determined, careful
3 negatives: racist, chauvinistic, messy
Are they holding onto something they should get rid of?
A grudge, definitely emotional baggage…
If 10 is completely organized and 1 is completely messy, where do they fall on the scale?
Probably a 3, bad enough that other people does his organizing for him in the office.
What most frustrates them about the world they live in?
So many Asians, quote politician Pauline Hanson (she’s a real person): Asian Invasion. That and Dominos Pizza is shrinking.
How would they dress for a night out? How would they dress for a night in?
On summers night it would be just shorts for a night IN. For a night out, a black shirt with jeans, because he can.
How many shoes do they own, and what kind?
Asics running shoes, a black dress shoe and loafers/ slippers whatever you call them.
Do they have any pets? What pet do they WISH they had?
He is not a pet person, due to the nature of his work. But he might wish he has a pet Rottweiler to watch his back.
Is there something or someone that they resent? Why and what happened?
His ex-wife who had ran off with an Asian (he never knew exactly which nationality) pilot.
What’s usually in their fridge or pantry?
Protein bars and more protein bars…
I need your help!
Suggest something that I could change in the list, and I might consider it. IF my book ever gets published I promise to put your name on the thank list =d
