W is for Will

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 Freya Phillips.

**

I like to think I've been pretty lucky with my friends. There have been a few girls who wanted to be my friend just because I work with sexy soccer players, but for the most part, my friends are genuine.

Will is my best friend. I've known him for just over three years, and working with him has made my job one of the best I've ever had. He's funny, often unintentionally when he's stressing about some tiny thing that's out of place in his organised little world. He likes to be organised. But he makes me laugh every day.

The thing I like the most about him is that he's loyal. He would literally do anything for his friends, and if someone crosses them ... well, it's not pretty. Let's just say I'd rather have him on my side than against me! He's not violent, or scary or anything. But he doesn't hold back his feelings when someone upsets the people he's closest to.

I never really understood why he's been single for so long. Quirks aside, he's amazing. I guess he just hasn't found the right woman yet.

*waves to everyone" Thank you enormously for all of your comments and support! I am - again - being slow with commenting BUT I do have a very good and exciting reason! I have just about finished my WIP! *does a happy dance* I am just going over the final edits, so if I'm quiet, it's nothing personal, I'm just trying to bind all these characters together in the book so you can find out how their stories play out! :D

  1. Well done for finishing your WIP during April - my writing has practically stopped. In fact, I'm hoping I can get started again!

    I'll be really interested in reading more about all these characters when they're all together!

  5. I've been slow too, Kyra. The books have to come first, they're the reason we're here, right? Best of luck with the final touches. Your characters in your blog posts seem solid, so the rest must be great!

  6. I have no idea how you manage to keep up with the A-Z, your WiP and your articles. Do you ever sleep? :P

    Excellent as always. I like Freya a lot, and you can tell she's got strong feelings for Will simply by the way she speaks about him!

  7. Hi Kyra .. good for you - well done and good luck with the edits .. we're here as the A-Zers go!!

    I like Freya .. she's treating Will like a brother or similar too - which must help their working relationship enormously ..

    Cheers Hilary

  14. You know, yesterday you said you felt insecure about your voice, but I must say, I think you've done marvelously writing all of these diary entries all month. Each one has been different and felt genuine.

  19. How great to be able to work with somebody like Will everyday. You're very lucky. It certainly helps with work stress to be able to laugh once in a while.

  22. How exciting. What an accomplishment. Thank you for following me on my new blog. It is just something new I am going to work on in May, but I was so happy when I saw that I had a friend. It was a lonely feeling before you signed on so thank you so much.
