Brooke at Paper Mountain is doing a blogfest where people write questionaires about characters and people have to answer in the comments.
By the way, often when I do a blogfest people say, "Aw man, I wish I could have done this." There's still time! This is going on all day. I wish more people would join because answering everyone's questions will be so much fun!
I'm going to do Eric and Savvy from my book Hunger. They're basically my favorite characters I've ever written.
1. What is your greatest strength and weakness?
Eric: I don't know. Can we talk about something else, please?
Savvy: Hmm... I think my greatest strength is that I'm adventurous and willing to try new things. No, wait, I want to change my answer. I'm kind to everyone. As for my weakness? I guess I'm too trusting of people.
2. What's your favorite book and why?
Eric: The Portrait of Dorian Gray. I identify with it.
Savvy: Oh my gosh, have you read Garden Spells? It was soooo romantic, I was practically swooning the whole time I was reading it. I could lend you my copy.
3. When was the last time you cried?
Eric: The day my wife's daughter was born.
Savvy: Just the other day Eric took me to the ballet and we saw Romeo and Juliet. I bawled like a baby. Eric kissed my cheek and told me I was adorable. Isn't that sweet?
4. What do you want most? What will you do to get it?
Eric: I want my life back. There's nothing I can do about that.
Savvy: I want to be with Eric forever and ever and ever and ever. I'd die for him.
5. Do you have a secret? What would you do if your secret was revealed?
Eric: Look, I gotta go. It was nice meeting you.
Savvy: Nope! My life's an open book.
