Beautiful People- Talitha

So, I've finally decided to officially join in on the Beautiful People questionaires. I just couldn't resist this month's questions. To find out more about participating in this yourself, just go here to Georgianna's blog.

For this month's questions, I will be featuring the main character of my next book- Talitha McDermmet.

1. If character's house burned down, and they were left with nothing but the clothes on their back, what would they do? Where would they go?  
Oh, goodness! Well, she would definitely be in shock. Probably too much shock to do much of anything, so she would stay with a friend for a couple days, until the shock wore off, then she would go back home to her parents' house until she could get back on her feet.

 2. Are they happy with where they are in life, or would they like to move on? 
I'd say in some areas she's content, but in other areas she wants so much more...which is really where her story comes into play.

3. Are they well-paid? 
She makes enough to live and pay her rent and other bills, but she doesn't make enough to be extravagent or buy a lot of things she doesn't really need.

 4. Can they read? 
Of course she can but, even though she likes to read, she's not the type to constantly carry a book with her everywhere she goes. (Which might seem a bit odd, since she works in a bookshop.)

 5. What languages do they speak? 
English. Does Pig Latin count? She did take a year of Spanish in high school, but she can no longer remember even the simplist of phrases.

 6. What is their biggest mistake? 
She lets people get to her too much, and lets them convince her she's incapable of doing things she wants (and probably can if she really tries) to do.

 7. What did they play with most as a child? 
Other kids in the neighborhood and her little play house with kitchen set. She especially loved playing house with her (then) neighbor Daniel (who is now her boyfriend) and his little sister Michelle.

 8. What are their thoughts on politics? 
She's Conservative, and feels very strongly about certain issues, but she doesn't like getting into political debates and discussions, so she won't voluntarilly voice her opinions on such things unless she feels she absolutely must.

 9. What is their expected life time? 
She expects to live a good long life.

 10. If they were falsely accused of murder, what would they do? How would they react? 
Shock would come into play again, and she would probably break down crying. Then she would talk to everyone she knows to see if any of them could help find a way to prove her innocence, and when she found someone...she'd be tempted to hide in the security of her bed until everything blows over. :-P

I can completely and utterly concur with this: I'd say in some areas she's content, but in other areas she wants so much more... I can also relate to her views on politics and voicing one's opinions on such subjects. I hate arguing and so I tend to keep silent on most politic-related things. But in the case of being accused of murder... I'd be more like my charrie Essie, and retaliate with a vengeance unlike any other. :P

Can't wait to see more of this lil minion of yours! Hee, hee!

And thank you for the birthday wishes! You are entirely too sweet. Thanks for the smiles! ^.^ ^.^

Ha ha! I can see you now huddling under your covers with a flashlight and notebook plotting your revenge! "Be afraid! Be very afraid!" ;-)
I'm hoping to get my characters and basic plot defined enough to soon post a character profile post. I've already gotten the pictures done for the characters I've already got. So, hopefully, you'll see more of Talitha soon.

Oh, I like Talitha! Her answer to the tenth question made me giggle -- I can completely see that happening. ;)

And she works in a bookshop? That's fantastic. ^_^
