Blog Chain - MC Fear Central

Today's Blog Tour Stops:

We have an awesome day on the Blog Tour today! I'll be featured over at:

Matt Rush's
Shaun Hutchinson's

Stop on by and leave a comment for more entries in the Grand Prize Giveaway! Matt will also be doing a giveaway so head to his blog for deets :D

Now, Blog Chain time. This topic was chosen by the lovely Christine who wants to know:

What is the main character of your current WiP MOST afraid of, and why?

 We aren't supposed to use an old WIP, but my current WIP is an old WIP that I'm rewriting so here goes :)

This is going to be short and sweet, but it's pretty straight forward :) Min is most afraid of being helpless...of having her choices taken away. Her whole motivation for everything she does in the book is to ensure that she is the master of her own life.

What is your MC most afraid of?

And, as promised a few days ago, a picture of the super huge Grand Prize Basket that will be awarded to one commenter from my Blog Tour!

The winner will receive his/her choice of T-shirt, a signed copy of my Homework Helpers: Essays and Term Papers, a copy of Homework Helpers: English Language and Composition, an aluminum water bottle, a spiral notebook, bookmarks, custom pens, postcards, a calendar magnet, a mouse pad, and various other stationary items and edible treats (they aren't pictured but they'll be included because, well, I like various stationary items and edible treats) :D

The more blog tour stops you comment on, the more entries you get for this drawing! Go comment! :D

I can imagine what it feels like to have your choices in life taken away. Such as fear can be a motivation for most of what we do in life. I can see how people will be able to relate to your character. Great post :)

I saw your post over at Matt Rush's and just figured I'd drop by here to say hi! And as for what the MC in my present WIP is afraid of, let's just say he doesn't want to look anyone directly in the eye for fear of their personal safety.

Great choice of fears. That's a good motivator in any character. And wow, that grand prize pic just makes me drool.

Please contest gods, be nice to me! :D

Good ask! That's a really tangible way to give depth to characters and move plot. I'm still in a place where all these basics need to be at the front of my mind :)
