I know I recently wrote about this, but I want to do it again because it came up when I was writing last night.
My heroine wanted the hero to give her a good reason why he should go on a date with her. So I'm thinking, hmmm, maybe they share a favorite movie? You know, similar taste and all. I've got it. Last of the Mohicans!
Immediately I realized that movie wouldn't work. Firstly, it's MY favorite, not Rachel's. Secondly, I'm totally different than my heroine. She's bold and adventurous. I'm adventurous too, but not to the point of breaking rules. But she loves to bend the rules.
Anyways, so I was stuck. What kind of movie would she like? He'd have to like it, too.
The dilemma proved to be too much for me. I went with music instead.
It's passionate and classy, just like my heroine.
How do you characterize your peeps when their tastes are totally different from yours?
