GET UP OFFA THAT SLUMP: If I Were a Fictional Character in a YA Novel…

Posted March 14, 2016 by Nori in Challenges / 4 Comments

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.

THE DOG

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!

  1. It’s funny–my friend and I IRL were talking about this earlier today! I’m the bookish best friend and the short girl who has a crush on a TALL guy. Maybe a protag in a contemporary?

  2. Lynnette

    Haha I love this post!! Some or your descriptions sound like friends I’ve actually had over the years. 🙂

  3. Sarah Cone

    Great character choices! Those totally fit you. I’d add:
    1.The cool down to earth teacher that takes troubled/bullied/worried teens under your wing to guide them AND
    2.A charters mom that is “everyone’s mom”, who gives much needed advice/counseling and support/understanding to those who aren’t getting that from their own parents.

    I’d be:
    1. The supportive yet eccentric friend
    2. The comic relief or like you,
    3. The “everyone’s mom”
