Oh, the Insecure Writer's Support Group has proposed an interesting question this month . . .
March Question: Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?
My Answer: I had to think really hard on this one! It's a great character development idea, too. In my first novel, Who R U Really?, the main character's mother gives her a "quote of the day" calendar every year for Christmas. That's their tradition, and one year, the mom changes the calendar. No good. Goes back to the tradition.
Here are a few quotes from that fictional calendar tradition:

Have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?
That's a simple tradition to use. And clever to note the question is a great character development idea.ReplyDelete

My mother tried to start a tradition of giving my daughter a snow globe for Christmas each year, but she didn't have the space to keep all of them!ReplyDelete
Great calendar and a super idea to use it for character development. Happy IWSG day, belated.ReplyDelete
