So, you probably remember the other two or three sign-ups I made but didn’t do anything with the characters, right? This time is different, because I know that it is possible for me to finish a novel. But I’m finding it a little hard to find inspiration. Therefore, these sign-ups have a twist!
One of the things I will get you to fill in is “Status”. Now, these statuses will give me inspiration for the story (hopefully). Your status could be anything. What I mean by “Status” is the status in relation to the main character (whom I have yet to imagine). Examples: flatmate, classmate, mailman, housekeeper, boss, etc. Or, you could be more imaginative (which I want you to be!!) and do things such as: principal’s boyfriend, online stalker, cashier at the cinema, local drug dealer, boarding school caretaker, etc.
Your Statuses will define the story and the main character! Anyway, click ‘more’ for the sign-up form!

Okay, I think I’ll fill out the form for the MC now.
Name: Marie-Claire Renaud (usually shortened to Marie)
Ethnicity: Half-French, half-American
Status: N/A, as she is the MC
Appearance: Very pale skin, dark brown hair, blue eyes, pretty face but one that many eyes would simply pass over (so, not pretty enough to gain attention). Slender figure, likes to wear whatever is clean and within reach.
Personality: She’s a very feisty, independent girl and it’s very hard to make friends with her, as she has put up a few walls. She has a witty and sharp tongue and tries not to draw attention a lot. She’s competitive when challenged, but mostly she’s a quiet girl unless confronted. She prefers to sit in the local library and read books. She has average grades and is quick to judge people.
Talents: She can read very fast and climbs trees like a monkey. And she is the Queen of Witty Arguments.
Extra Info: She has an odd fondess for bananas, completing her image as a monkey. She hates pavlova and stoic people creep her out (though I don’t know if this will ever be relevant to the story). And she has a pet turtle, named Aurélie. Oh yeah, she can’t speak French because she hasn’t seen her parents since she was four. But your statuses might determine why this is so!
