Beautiful People: August Edition

By Sky Destrian - August 05, 2016

Hello again, writerlings! Another month, another round of Beautiful People. August snuck up on me quickly--July simultaneously went by too fast and moved at the pace of molasses. But here we are again back with more questions for your writing needs! This month's are themed around your character's appearance, and I'm so excited to read about what your beautiful people look like!

But first...

What is Beautiful People?
Beautiful People is a blog meme hosted by myself and the ever-awesome Cait @ Paper Fury. Every month, we post ten questions to help you get to know your characters better. They can be elusive and enigmatic, but we hope every question we post brings you closer to the answers about your wonderful beautiful people (your characters). 

How do I join?
Just jump in! Snag the questions, post them on your blog, and come back to add your link! I also recommend checking out the posts of the other participants. It's a great way to make new friends.

Please also give Cait and I a link back--whether through a regular link, or these shiny blog buttons:

And now for the questions!

  1. Give a brief overview of their looks. (Include a photo if you want!)
  2. Share a snippet that involves description of their appearance.
  3. What is the first thing people might notice about them?
  4. What are their unique features? (Ex: freckles, big ears, birthmark, scars, etc.)
  5. How tall are they? What is their build (Ex: stocky, slender, petite, etc.)
  6. What is their posture like? How do they usually carry themselves?
  7. Your character has been seen on a “lazy day” (free from usual routine/expectations): what are they wearing and how do they look?
  8. Do they wear glasses, accessories, or jewelry on a regular basis? Do they have any article of clothing or accessory that could be considered their trademark?
  9. Have they ever been bullied or shamed because of their looks? Explain!
  10. Are they happy with how they look? If they could change anything about their appearance, what would it be?

Let's talk! Who's your favorite character right now, either yours or someone else's? Tell me about your WIP! How are you feeling now that summer's almost over? (Sadness.) Sound off in the comments!

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
