Welcome to my third post for the Get Up Offa That Slump blogging extravaganza hosted by Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf!
I decided to come up with a couple of different character profiles that I could see myself being if I were a fictional character in a YA novel. I hope you enjoy!
THE BOOKISH BEST FRIEND
You know the character I’m talking about…She wears glasses, has long brown hair, and constantly has her head in a book. She’s the friend that always plays a supporting role while her friends have adventures. She’s the one who always gets the phone call/text/Skype message and constantly tries to help her friends. Wait…this is actually me. I don’t need to be a character in a book to fill this profile! 😉
THE SPUNKY/SARCASTIC YA HEROINE
You know the girl who doesn’t back down when people try to stomp on her? The girl who almost always has a retort? The girl who is sarcastic and has great comebacks? The girl who fights for what she believes and doesn’t let anyone stop her in working towards her goal? I could be her. Maybe. I think so. 😛
THE FIRST FRIEND OF SOMEONE WHO MOVES INTO THE AREA
You know the drill- when a character moves to a new area, they always meet someone nice on the first day, who ends up becoming one of their closest friends. Seeing as I actually have had experience with being the first friend of someone who moved into my area, I think I have this character down pat.
What can I say? I think that I know what it feels like to be a dog…especially a poodle. I already have practice on Twitter!
So, there you have it! Those are four characters that I think I would be in a YA novel! Do you agree with me? Do you have other ideas as to what type of character I could be?
What type of character would YOU be? Let me know in the comments below!
