Ok so this week let's begin at the beginning! Describe yourself as you would be described by a writer. Imagine yourself the character in a novel and then tell us all about your motivations, appearance, drives, likes/dislikes, lovers and friends. Do you have pets? Are you a superhero or just an ordinary guy/gal?
Really look deep inside and describe the real you...the real you that you know you are inside.
I like this prompt but I don't. I can't find a way to describe me.
I made a list to start out with - I'll share that and maybe you can help me find a way to put it together?
overweight (morbidly obese)
short mousey blond/brown hair
animals - especially critters like rabbits, hedgehogs, prairie dogs (I'm getting two on April 12th or 13th), skunks, capybaras (which I really want) and other "exotic" animals
chocolate - any kind but especially dark chocolate or chocolate with mint
coffee - MUST HAVE coffee to start out my day
People often tell me I'm compassionate, easy to talk to and have a quiet strength and "dry" humor. I like one-liners and puns.
I am a low-energy person and have struggled with depression my whole life.
When I look at myself I'm not the superhero at all - nor am I the bad guy or the person being rescued. I see myself as the person behind the hero...like Bruce Wayne's butler (or whatever he is) or "Diggle" to Arrow's Oliver Queen (tv show).
What's interesting is I'm ok with being in that "behind the scenes" place. I have no desire to be out where people can see me. I'd much rather be a wall flower.
Yet I often come across to people online as being confident, self-assured, lively and social....almost like a distorted reflection in a mirror of what I'm like in real life.
I often wonder though which is the distorted image.
Try working with that?
