Challenge Thingerbobber #CharacterQuirks

July 7, 2020

FREE WRITING

29

    So! This might totally crash and burn (which is fine--no pressure to take part), but I had an idea while I was showering (#showerthoughts haha) and thought it was worth a shot. Also, it has my twin's stamp of approval (in case you were wondering) (you weren't').
    Alright, enough stalling. You know how the things that make characters most relatable and people most lovable are the random quirks in their behavior? Just like little mannerisms specific to them that are subtle and insignificant but so adorable because you love that person/character.
    I thought that it would be cool for people to make a list of their own peculiarities and post them. That way, it can both boost self-image and help us all make our characters more unique and multidimensional. Another way you could do this is to write one about your OCs, but I think it could be really good for everyone's mental health to step back and look at the things that make them special.
    Anyway, if this sounds interesting, please do try it out! Include the tag #CharacterQuirks in the title and comment the link down below so I don't miss any of these. I guess I should probably do this first (oh no the pressure is on hehe), so look out for that.
    Eek, this is both exciting and terrifying. Now I'm wondering how I'm supposed to end this post. Okay, Anne, this isn't hard, just don't be cheesy. PEACE OUT!!
Well, that wasn't a cheesy way to end at all.

    awww, thanks bubble wrap ;) XD, i'm glad you like it. and it's okay, i'm sending some of my new work to magazines and they like it so there's that anyway. and lol, Dmoral is perfectly fine (i changed from Dmoral13 to Dmoral 'cause everyone referred to me as Dmoral anyway lol) but you can call me whatever you please :).

    replying,
    thanks. it's weird, i feel like since my hiatus i've actually got this "writing thing" under wraps and started to actually like my poetry and have been writing more short stories (AND ACTUALLY EDITING MY WORK!) but my feedback from others has gone done, lol. like, i write for me obviously, but it's always nice to know what others think. anyway, it's okay, i don't really mind much, it is what it is sometimes. perhaps my "change" of writing i've experienced from my hiatus just doesn't really fit this site anymore or at least, most of the audience/people here. oh well. thanks for the love as always, Anne (i feel as though i should have a personalized nickname for ya 'cause you're so nice & we interact & i like your writing....uhm, how about "Blue"? short for blueberry cotton candy lol. or "bubble wrap" 'cause you seem light & fun. and of course, there's always "munchkin". if not i can call ya something else ;) this is, unless you're really just wanna stick with Anne).
    best wishes ~

    replying: oh my gosh thank you for the explanation! i’ll take time to really absorb it! “ So a temperament type is different than just your personality because your personality can change and is based on your surroundings, while your temperament is something you're born with ” i’m so sorry i’m a little confused on this part? so a temperament is more of a permanent natural state than a personality? also, sanguine sounds somewhat like me! melancholic was my close second, so you and i are semi-opposites LOL.

    also i actually listened to "caught in the storm" . i had never heard of it before and regretfully admit i don't listen to country music that much i usually gravitate towards indie but it was really cool! im thinking maybe i should go search up some country songs to add to my playlist..hmm
