A Novel Idea: Logan, Joseph, and Deyani

Greetings!

Edit: I accidentally posted this early ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I quickly discovered how to delete posts! =P

I found another writer linkup that I wanted to be a part of ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m having so much fun reading these type of things and participating ๐Ÿ™‚

This one is called “A Novel Idea” and is hosted by Ashley @ Ashley Aspires. It comes out once a week (To the best of my knowledge), and asks questions about characters and writing processes and snazzy things like that. If you like writing and talking to people about writing, be sure to check it out! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m a bit late (It was on Saturday, but shhhh…), but I’ll make sure to do it on time next time =P

I’d add pictures of people who look similar to my characters, but I can’t think of anyone off the top of my head who fits them. Maybe next time ๐Ÿ˜‰

First off is Logan Anderson, the primary protagonist of my main fantasy novels. I love him to pieces. He’s the meekest, most unlikely hero there could be, and yet, he’s had quite a load of responsibility dumped on his shoulders. Poor guy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Sometimes I feel really bad for him.

1. Have they started a family? If so, tell about them. If not, do they plan to?

Logan doesn’t have a family yet, but he’s always wanted kids. He thinks they’re adorable a lot of the time. He wants a daughter more than a son, but he would pour out his heart for any child that came to him.

2. Who would they turn to if they were in desperate need of help?

Stuart Brown. He was Logan’s roommate through college and his most loyal friend. Stuart’s usually the logical and much more assertive half of the pair, while Logan’s just too nice to do anything that might hurt someone.

3. Do they mind being in the midst of a large group of people?ย 

Not really. He’ll just get quiet and sit aside, unless someone’s trying to talk to him. He usually won’t initiate anything.

4. Are they more of a leader or a follower?ย 

Follower, definitely. He’s fine with deciding things for himself, but he doesn’t like to lead others, since he doesn’t want to offend them/push them around.

5. Do they care what others think of them? Why or why not?

He used to a lot, and still does a little bit, mostly because his family didn’t like him very much when he was growing up and he wanted them to (They were jerks D: He’s better off without them, to be honest). He’s not particularly self confident, since they were nasty to him, but he’s getting there.

Next up is Joseph Eliot, an old cowboy fellow from my upcoming Nanowrimo novel ๐Ÿ˜€ He’s gruff and has no problem with giving people a piece of his mind. Quite the opposite from my gentle Logan.

1. Have they started a family? If so, tell about them. If not, do they plan to?

He had a wife and three kids (A daughter and twin sons), but they died when a group of skinwalkers assaulted their home. He was away when it happened and (of course) blames himself for it.

2. Who would they turn to if they were in desperate need of help?

His uncle, who is a medicine-man for a nearby tribe. Joe trusts him to know a lot more than he does on many fronts.

3. Do they mind being in the midst of a large group of people?ย 

He’d prefer not to be. If he finds himself there, he’ll survive. He knows how to handle himself in a crowd, but if he has the opportunity to be with less people or alone, he’ll take it.

4. Are they more of a leader or a follower?ย 

Leader. “My way or the highway” style.

5. Do they care what others think of them? Why or why not?

Not in the least. He’s confident enough in himself that what they think doesn’t matter. Besides that, there’s only a few people he actually deeply cares about. If they say something, he’ll weigh it a fraction heavier than someone else saying something, but it still doesn’t bother him much.

_____________

Last, but not least, is another character from my Nanowrimo novel. Deyani is a young girl from the same tribe as Joe’s uncle. She’s actually his granddaughter (Technically Joe’s first cousin, once removed, if I’m not mistaken. Families are confusing). She’s adventurous and quite a bit fiery, but a touch gullible, since she’s so young.

1. Have they started a family? If so, tell about them. If not, do they plan to?

Nooooo!! She’s only fifteen. She doesn’t have any plans either way, but she’s a little afraid that kids would tie her down from her adventures, and she certainly doesn’t like that plan.

2. Who would they turn to if they were in desperate need of help?

Joe, without a doubt. He’s been a sort of guardian since she was born, and she trusts him with anything.

3. Do they mind being in the midst of a large group of people?ย 

Not at all. She loves it, actually.

4. Are they more of a leader or a follower?ย 

She’s fine with either, as long as she can give input as a follower. Rigid leaders don’t do well for her.

5. Do they care what others think of them? Why or why not?

Yes. She’s young and not fully comfortable with herself. Insults and the like can hurt, but instead of just getting sad and leaving, she tends to get…bitey over it.
