Fifteen Day Challenge Days One and Two

I'll admit, this is another one of those things that it seems all my friends are doing, and I end up getting sucked into. Not a bad thing, though. And I did promise more posts soon, so this counts! Right? ;-)
This challenge comes from Lerowen's blog and can be found here:

Day One- Favorite Character You've Written

Well, what can I say? There is only one work that I've really written enough to actually get to know the characters. My choices are wide enough, even in that one work...Would it be Caleb? Would it be Naji? Perhaps Karen or Holly or Purity? Or would it be the more obvious Hwinny...







Honestly, I think my favorite would actually be Lady Henafubi.
She may be a bit of a silent presence in the story, but she's a strong silent presence. She's also based off of a friend of mine by the same (English) name, so I can't help liking her. Thankfully we'll get to know her more in the next book. ;-)



Day Two- Favorite Male Author

It seems my friends have taken most of those I would pick.
I love C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, J.R.R. Tolkien...a whole slew of those most beloved by my friends.
However, and I hope this counts as they more compiled than authored, my absolute favorite other than those would be the Grimm Borthers. Fairy tale freak that I am. ;-)
How can anyone not at least appreciate, if not love, the original classic tales that have inspired the imaginations of millions- including our favorite authors!
To me, these are the best, and I think Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are to be honored, for where would we be without fairy tales?
I, for one, would be truely lost.


And if they don't count, then I say Hans Christian Andersen! ;-P

Echem, anywhoo...

All your characters that I have read about seem wonderful. I'd love to meet any one of them. ^.^ And Lady Henafubi sounds most interesting indeed.

Lol! Katie, you crack me up! You are hopeless! ;-P *snugs* I think I have the perfect CD to burn you a copy of. ;-)
And thank you...I'm glad you like my new look. :-)

Thanks, Lerowen! I look forward to the rest of it!
