My name is Jo and I have a confession to make - I have no idea who I am or who I want to be. I mean, I know who I am. I remember my childhood, know my family, am able to live day to day with no trouble. But I don't know who I am. Seems like up till now I've spent my whole life being the person everyone else wants me to be. Go to school, play sports, work. But what do I want? How do I want to be spending my time? ...I don't know. I've never had a chance to really think about it. I'm not sure even how to start figuring that out! Someone told me to do something I enjoy, but I'm pretty sure painting my toenails and watching TV with my cat are not things I can monetize. Oh but wouldn't it be great if that job came with free chocolate too? Anyway, I'm just not sure how to figure all this stuff out. And now I have to go to work so I'm out of time to think about it. Maybe tomorrow. Yeah. Tomorrow I'll have time to figure out who I am. That can be done in one day, right?
(This post not autobiographical. ..I don't like cats that much, and for years had a thing against painting my toenails. Free chocolate at work would be pretty awesome though!)
This month I am participating in the April A-Z Challenge! http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/ My theme for the month is ‘character development.’ Some days will be exercises from John Gardner’s The Art of Fiction, http://amzn.com/0679734031 others will be profiles of characters from my book Armageddon: Pick Your Plot, http://amzn.com/0615715850 and some will just be random characters I make up. I hope you enjoy!
