We mentioned that we are working on a new book together. It's four novellas but it's going to be structured as one whole book that's tied together though with the first four of us writing it. The fun thing about it is that we are using our own personalities so it's easy for us to write one another's characters.
Have you ever realized you are living a fairy tale or children's story? As I formatted our final document to go to Ami, I realized again that we are, well, Winnie the Pooh characters. LOL First there is Kristin. She's the Owl. She is quick to offer her opinions and views, even if we don't quite agree. And in a very witty way. LOL Then there is Diann. She is Piglet, even though she's not round. LOL She loves going on adventures with Pooh just like she likes being prodded into adventures with me. Piglet loves bright colors, balloons, and blowing dandelions just like Di loves Christmas music, chocolate and her family. She can easily be inspired to step out of her comfort zone.
Denise is Eeyore. Very intelligent and a deep thinker but tends to, um see the glass as half empty. LOL She keeps us grounded and organized and is VERY creative. Then there is me. I'm Tigger in case you didn't know. I can be unbearably cheerful. Obnoxiously so. LOL I am bouncy and like to coax the others to do things they might otherwise be too shy to do. I'm a major extrovert like Tigger but every group of introverts needs someone like me.
So did any of this surprise you or did you have us pegged pretty well? And doesn't that just make you all the more eager to read Smitten? To get to know us better? :-)
Even though Cheryl isn't in the collection since it's only 4 stories, she is part of our Pooh parade too. She is Rabbit with her love of the outdoors and the way she likes to concentrate alone on what her task is. :)
How about YOU and your best friends? What fairy tale or children's story characters are you?
