I haven’t entered a blogfest for a while because they are so time consuming, but this one looked too fun to pass up! Also, there’s another irresistible one coming up in July, which is actually a four-part fest, one each week for four weeks! It’s all about literary agents, and I’m tweeting the details, so hop on over to Twitter to get the goods.
Back to this blogfest – it is hosted by Elizabeth Mueller, based on an exercise by The Character Therapist, Jeannie Campbell. Basically, you answer these three questions from your MC’s point of view: What is your greatest fear? What is your biggest accomplishment? What is your biggest regret? So fun! My main character is Evangeline Westvale, of my urban fantasy novel Countless. Here goes:
Question 1: What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is losing control. I’m totally type-A. Since I joined Prince and Barton Marketing right out of Harvard a couple years ago, I’ve been on a fast track up the corporate ladder. As long as I’ve got a handle on things, nothing can really stop me.
Of course, that was before I discovered I’m being stalked by an immortal sorcerer who wants me dead. That’s changed things a bit. I started having crazy dreams about long ago times and magic. And I’ve begun to break things when I get scared or upset. Then I kissed a shapeshifter, which was really awesome and the best kiss of my life. Except I’m engaged to someone else. So, I’ve pretty much lost control of everything. But it’s not as bad as I thought – because my biggest fear now is losing my soul to the one who hunts me.
Question 2: What is your biggest accomplishment?
Well, landing my job and getting promoted several times since then would have been my answer a week ago. But now I rank defensive spells and busting Ambrose out of the rival shapeshifters’ underground lair at the top of the list. Those weretigers are a bitch.
Question 3: What is your biggest regret?
Breaking my fiancée’s heart is something that will haunt me forever. He’s a good guy. But if I stayed with him, I’d just be dragging him into the line of fire. He already nearly died when Ulric possessed him to try to get to me. We live in different worlds now. He’s a Manhattan attorney, and I’m a witch who’s lived countless lives. It just wouldn’t work out.
That's it! Pop on over to Elizabeth's blog to read the other entries!!
