I'm participating in a blogfest in which I get to highlight one of my favorite characters I've ever written.
If that isn't a hard enough decision... I'm not at all good at picking favorites. My kids always ask me what's my favorite movie/song/food/color/... I can never choose!
Anyway, I've decided for this fest to go with Scarlett: a blind girl who has been kidnapped from London. What's been fun about writing Scarlett is that she speaks with a lot of British colloquialisms. She's a small girl with a big personality.
Here are a few of her lines:
"All parents are berks."
"We're here to gen up, savvy?"
"Pull yer finger out."
And the always classic, "Right you are, Guv'nah."
She makes a fun contrast to the stoic American kid who's trying to help her.
Thanks for stopping by and if you follow me, I will always return the favor!
