Beautiful People, Amy

I have never done a Beautiful People post and so I thought I'd give it a try. All you  have to do is answer questions about your character, and there are different questions each month. Now I've never done it so I'm going to start with the first series of questions they ever had.

I will be doing my first Beautiful People post on Amy, the girl from my current writing project. If you, after or before reading this, are curious about the book, I wrote an except here.

1. What is her full name?
Amy {At the moment I don't have a full name for her.}

2. Does her name have a special meaning?
Amy was named after her great grandmother who was a an avid reader. She loved her great grandmother, who introduced her to the magic of reading, and loves that she was named after her.

3. Does your character have a methodical or disorganized personality?
Amy has a little bit of both. Normally she is quite organized, but as a writer she can forget about the state of her apartment for weeks on end.

4. Does she think inside herself more than she talks out loud to friends (more importantly, does she actually have friends?)
Amy does tend to think and talk more to herself. She does have a few friends that are real people. She would say she has a boat load of friends, but she considers books to be her friends also.

5. Is there something she is afraid of?
Amy is afraid of letting life pass her by without doing something important. But Amy is also afraid to try new thing and takes comfort in her everyday life.  

6. Does she write, dream, dance, sing, or photograph?
Amy does indeed write and plans on making that her profession. She dreams of writing a book and getting it published. Amy does dance but only in the privacy of her apartment and she does not sing. She tried photography at a younger age but could never make it work.

7. What is her favorite book?
She doesn't have a favorite book but enjoys poetry and anything Shakespeare.

8. Who is her favorite author and/or someone that inspires her?
Amy is inspired by a quote well said and a thought well thought. She has a load of people she is inspired by and couldn't think of just one if her life depended on, although some of her favorite authors are:
 - C.S.Lewis, Shakespeare, Edger Allen Poe, Emily Brontë, Arthur Doyle, and Agatha Christie.
As you can tell by the list of people she is not a big fan of modern authors though it is not the case all the time.

9. Favorite flavor of ice cream
Amy doesn't enjoy ice cream due to a bad experience as a kid and isn't much a big sweets eater either.

10. Favorite season of the year
Amy's favorite season is fall. She loves the inspiration that comes with the change in nature.

Well, I enjoyed writing that and hope you enjoy looking into the life of one of my characters. If you have never done a Beautiful People post you should, they are very fun!
