I'm Hearing Voices: Character on the Couch

It's the first day of the I'm Hearing Voices, character blog fest. Day one is a brief interview with one of you characters. The questions were provided by the hop hosts, Cassie and Angie, and they weren't easy! (For me any way, seriously, I don't know how I'd answer some of these myself.) :) Thank you Cassie and Angie for hosting this, it's such a great idea.

I'm interviewing Erwin, a high school senior.

Question one:
What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?
I guess I have a hard time letting go of the past. Unfortunately, it's less of a secret than I'd like it to be.

Question two:
What do people believe about you that is false?
That I'm kind of naive about people, only seeing what I want to see. It's not true. I do see the bad stuff, too, I just think the good stuff out weighs it.

Question three:
What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?
That I try to take care of everyone, fix everything, whether they want me to or not.

Question four:
What would that same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?
(Laughs) I don't know, I guess that I do stick to my guns maybe.

Question five:
What do you want most? What will you do to get it?
I want to keep my group together and safe. What will I do? I don't know. Once I figure out what it will take to do that, then I'll do it.

  5. Thanks you guys. This was a lot of fun. :) And Leigh, Erwin is my husband's middle name. He wanted to use it for our son. I said no, but used it in the book instead. ;)

  7. Aww, he sounds like a sweety! Sounds like he'd go to a lot of lengths to protect the people he cares about.
