A Note

To Whom It May Concern:

Please excuse Cece from blogging this week. She’s got to go see a man about a horse.

Ignore Stephie, she has a strange sense of humor. Kinda like that other Stephanie that’s always sending Jake over here to cause a ruckus.

Thanks a lot, Brent! :fu: Jake’s hot. :woot:

Save your birds, woman. And keep your eyes in your head. You’re mine. Anyway Cece has some serious writing to do. I got babies to make and I’m tired of her leaving us hanging in limbo.

All our love,

Stephie and Brent

Quirks

Morgan Hawke on Static Traits
Morgan’s got some GREAT posts on writing on her blog. I love this one–she uses The Mummy as an example.

And I love the way she breaks it down though I’ve alwasy called them personality quirks–something that’s unique to a character that in some way humanizes them for the reader.
For Jade it was the cookies (and food in general LOL). For Betti it’s paisley 😛 and “her rules”. For Rene it’s swearing.

So, do you give your characters special traits and if so what?

In other news I finally figured out Dada Mail for the newslist though I haven’t finished putting it up yet and I nearly forgot Easter-yes I’m a bad mom. Took the kids out Friday but promised them beenie babies (never mind they’re 11 and 9 and boys 😀 ) I made it to the Hallmark store with 20 minutes to spare. Whew!
