C is for Cuteness

My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Bree Collinson. 

**

 I love, love, love making new friends! My hubby, Jude, thinks I have more than enough already, but like I told him, a girl can never have too many friends, clothes or shoes. I mean, what if I left that perfect pair of Jimmy Choos in the shop, then needed them later to go with my new Alberta Ferretti? Disaster, right?

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh, right, new friends! A couple weeks ago, I met Taylor. She's dating Westberg's latest cutie pie, Jesse Shaw, and she is SO MUCH FUN! It's cool to have someone real close to my own age around. I don't know if we'll be swapping secrets or anything, but she knows how to have a good time, and that's what I like!

Today, I made another friend, her name's Leah and she's the new physiotherapist. She couldn't help me fix my broken nail, but she did make me a cup of coffee and we chatted for like ... hours! Well, maybe not hours, but a long time, and I already feel like she's my big sister because she didn't mind listening while I went on and on about Jude. She says we can meet for lunch on her next day off, and I can't wait!

  2. Oh I've met people like this. Again great voice. Creating a good voice is a skill that is hard to master and you have.

  3. Oh wow. She is... chipper, lol. I agree with the previous commenters: you can really see her voice and personality from this snippet. Haha, she definitely woke me up (it's 6am here). :-)

  7. LOL to asking a physiotherapist to fix a broken nail! Now, who wouldn't love that girl? I am loving these posts!

  8. To me, she sounds like the girl who'd be waiting outside your work everyday for lunch, and then for coffee, and then follow you home...

  9. Her voice shines in this. I cracked up reading how leaving the perfect pair of Jimmy Choo's at the store would have been a disaster. That is great! lol.

    Good Luck with the A-Z challenge. I shied away and consider you very brave :)

  10. "Jimmy Choos in the shop, then needed them later to go with my new Alberta Ferretti?"

    I have no idea what his means. I'm going to take jummy Choos as cockney rhyming slang and Alberta Feffetti as some sort of wrestler.

    Or it's some sort of women's clothing that for strangely enough, I have no idea about.

  13. Hi, Kyra! This is a great theme idea for A to Z! I like your character's voice. Bree sounds young and hip with a big personality!

    Nice to meet you and happy A to Z!

  14. Cute post! You know, I actually know someone who said that to me once-- she likes to collect friends.

  15. This is a great way to encourage people to read your work - inspired, I'd say:-)

  17. Gotta love a good cup of coffee. I love this idea for the A-Z Challenge! Can't wait for the next addition. :)

    Stopping by from the A-Z Challenge. Hello!

  18. She is indeed very cute! Lol. Reminds me of one of my BFFs.

  19. My god, give that girl some tranquilizers. She's so hyper.
    She's a good character, although I think I hate her. x3

  20. Haha, I with McKenzie. I'm so not the super bubbly type. (Although I have a feeling one of my CP's and best friends is like this in person) But great voice and contrast to your last character. ;0)

  21. What a great idea! I'll want to read the complete work long before you get to Z!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Totally loving your A to Z's!!! I'm thinking voice is a piece of cake for you :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. In my head, she has this super-high-pitched voice and is dressed in pink. You paint pictures very well, and that's half the battle! Sounds like the physiotherapist has found herself a new subject!

  24. What a fun character. No wonder she has so many friends! At first I thought you were talking about yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like upbeat fun characters :)

  26. What a great idea - I may steal it for next year! ;-)

    New follower here. I’m enjoying reading my fellow “A to Z”ers. I look forward to visiting again.

  31. Thanks, everyone! Seems there were mixed reactions to Bree and her bubbly nature! She is a little more toned down in the actual story - unless she is excited about something lol. :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh yes, I can just see her, twinkling through life. She's blonde, isn't she? (I'm blonde so that discounts any discrimination here!). You know? My new novel has a Jude as the m/c and a Leah in it :-)
