Beautiful People

Beautiful People


It’s all the Magic Violinist‘s fault–if I hadn’t read her post, I would never have know about Beautiful People for Writers. It’s a challenge to answer 10 questions about one of your fictional characters, to help to get him/her better.

I will be answering these about Hillary Noone, the protagonist of my work-in-progress, The Unicornologist.

  1. How did you come up with this character? Hillary is loosely based on myself as a teenager.
  2. Have they ever been starving? No, but she will come close in the book. Why? She camps deep in the woods for a week, and doesn’t bring enough food along. And what did they eat to break the fast? The book ends shortly after she returns home and before she gets to eat.
  3. Do they have a talent or skill that they’re proud of? Hillary is an brilliant student.
  4. List 3 things that would make them lose their temper. A. Being asked to do something by her step-mother. B. Being asked by her father to be respectful to her step-mother. C. Anyone attempting to harm the unicorn she is charged with protecting.
  5. What is their favourite type of weather? Warm and sunny. Least favorite? Cold and rainy.
  6. What is their Hogwarts house and/or MBTI personality? Hillary’s Myers-Briggs type is melancholic. She’s artistic, detail-oriented, patient, idealistic, perfectionist, moody, and introverted.
  7. Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the unknown future? Both.
  8. What is their favourite thing to drink? Coke.
  9. What is their favourite color? Green. Least favorite? Black.
  10. What is a book that changed their life? The Lore of the Unicorn. When she first became obsessed with unicorns, she borrowed this book from the library and studied it extensively.
