Writing Wednesday #9

Hello! Well, in my recent poll, I asked what y’all wanted to see in my posts and one of the most popular votes from Writing Wednesday was Character Interviews! So, I am going to attempt to do more of them for y’all! Not that it’s going to be hard, I adore getting to ‘talk’ to my characters. ;D



So, today I have a character from a book I just started. The book is “Just Your Ordinary Messenger” sequel to “Just Your Ordinary Girl”. I did an interview with the main character, Mandy, and you can view that here. Today I have one of the characters from this book, Brook.

Mikayla: So Brook, what is this book about?

Brook: Well, without telling too much; this book is when Mandy is working for A.C.T. (American Crime Taskforce) as a messenger, and she picks up a very important lead and is on the way to tell it to me when she is intercepted. To tell much more would ruin the story, but it is much more emotionally charged than the last book.

Mikayla: What part do you play in this book?

Brook: At one part of story, Mandy has to get a series of shots, and she’s terrified of needles, so a good part of the book is my role as a comforter in Mandy’s life. She’s about ten years younger than me, and I pretty much think of her as a little sister.

Mikayla: Would you please tell my readers about David.

Brook: *Scowl* the creep. Sorry, David comes in this book as assistant to the bad guy (Nameless at this point). David basically is does everything he’s told by him, including kidnaping Mandy. So yeah, were not on good terms though he does end up playing a big role on the bad side in this book.

Mikayla: Do you want to share anything from this book?

Brook: You just can't resist showing off your writing can you?

Mikayla: *Cough* Do you want to share it Brook?


Brook: Fine, here is the opening. This book is from Mandy's point of view, just so y'all know.

I watched as Matt struggled in vain to free himself from his captors as the two men led me down the empty alley way. My heart thumped loudly as they led me to a waiting car. 
“Let her go!” Matt yelled, and I looked back with pleading eyes. Wishing her could get free and help me, and also wishing he wouldn't put himself in danger like that. 
I screamed as they shoved me into the car and I fell down on the seat. 
“We meet again Miss McMullen.” I shank back at a familiar voice. “Though I hope this time you will be on more agreeable terms.” 
I pulled my knees up between my chained arms, hopefully to give myself some protection from him.
“Tut tut, Mandy, I hope you know me better than that. I won’t hurt you, as long as you tell me what I want to know.”  The man tisked. 
“You’re not exactly my go to person to hang out with and tell my secrets to.” I said glaring at him. 
“Ether tell me what I want to know or I will be forced to use other means to get it out of you.” He growled. 
My heart pounded as he talked and tried to keep myself calm. It would be okay. Matt and Brook would find me. I would get out of this. I had to, or life was going to become a lot more complicated for more than one person.

  2. I want to read more! I love your character interviews, Mikayla :) Turns out I hadn't read Just Your Ordinary Girl before, so I just started it Monday and can't wait to finish reading it (though I've been gone a lot during the day and haven't had a lot of free time to read it).

    And the story sounds AMAZING! Keep writing!
