Beautiful People (August Edition)


Happy Friday!

How are you guys doing? My body is exhausted and sleep-deprived, and I kinda want to be like this right now:


BUT my spirit is feeling inspired. I’d rather this than the other way around 🙂

Beautiful People is a character interview meme hosted by Sky @ Further Up and Further In and Cait from @ Paper Fury, which begins on the 5th of every month. Each month, a list of questions is posted for the characters in your story to answer. Feel free to join in on the fun! You can join in on any day of the month!

I will be writing about Matt from my contemporary novel titled Together We Will Live Forever (tentative.) Matt is a single father who lives with his daughter, Zelda. He works as an assistant in the Art Gallery of Ontario (one of those peeps who gives tours and tell you about the paintings.) His life changes when he meets Olivia, a neuroscientist who aspires to be an artist.

What are they addicted to/can’t live without?

Smoking. It might give him lung disease one day, but hey, he doesn’t need to live to a hundred.

Name 3 positive and 3 negative qualities about your character.

Matt is sincere, sensitive and a great cook. He is also easily offended, hates studying, and doesn’t trust anyone.

Are they holding onto something they should get rid of?

His wedding band.

If 10 is completely organized and 1 is completely messy, where do they fall on the scale?

On an average day, 5. When Olivia comes to babysit, 10.

What most frustrates them about the world they live in?

When you think everything ought to stop and freeze in a stand-still, life keeps on going on.

How would they dress for a night out? How would they dress for a night in?

Night out: Jeans and a T-shirt. Night in: Sweatpants and a T-shirt.

How many shoes do they own, and what kind?

Two pairs: Faux-leather oxfords for work, running shoes for everything else.

Do they have any pets? What pet do they wish they had?

No pets. If not for his allergies, Matt would very much want a cat.

Is there something or someone that they resent? Why and what happened?

His wife, for dying. Himself, for feeling that way.

What’s usually in their fridge or pantry?

The exact amount of groceries to make food for a week. Budget no-name brands are his go-to.

What are you working on? Tell me about your characters! Are you doing Beautiful People this month?

  1. That’s so insightful, you have developped a deeply “real” character.
