Camp NaNoWriMo: T-minus 13 days

Day 13: Guilty Pleasure

Exercise: What is your character’s guilty pleasure? How do they indulge it? What would they do if their friends found out?

Lia’s guilty pleasure is wearing dressy dresses/ballgowns. She had a few hand-me-down and secondhand store bought gowns in her closet at home. She would lock the door to her room and put on the dresses when she felt stressed. She usually didn’t do her hair and put on makeup. In the new city, she has made trips to secondhand stores where she tries on dresses. Eventually she breaks down and buys an inexpensive one, hiding it under her bed at the dormitory. When Aimee finds it, Lia is embarassed as she admits why she has it.

    The wedding dress idea is great. Sounds like you have done some great character creation. I have a very masculine character who secretly indulges in John Hughes films and knows every line to Pretty in Pink. He’d lie if his brothers found out but it’s an indulgence he shares with his younger sister and it gives them a special bond.

      That’s a great idea! I like how that sets his relationship with his sister apart from the one he has with his brothers. I’d be interested to see how that guilty pleasure started and how he started watching them with his sister. Did she watch John Hughes films before he started? Or did he introduce her to them? How did that go? That scene would show a whole lot about him.
