So, I started thinking about what kind of person my MC is. I know she has aspirations to be a journalist, is allergic to contact lenses, and has an affliction for classic literature and movies. So how do I get to know more about Alex? Then it made me wonder, how does one get to know anyone? Then of course after all that thinking I got pretty hungry and dug through my purse to find change for a snack. Then IT HIT ME. You can tell a lot about a person from what's in their purse.
In High School, I had a black messenger bag that said "Jesus Loves Me and My Tattoos." It carried my five subject notebook, a bunch of pens and mechanical pencils, My Kroger name tag and usually a copy of the latest book that I was reading. On a side note, I didn't have any tattoos and dressed even better than I do now. So I really wasn't as cool as I may have seemed.
So what's in my purse?
First off, yes I do have a lime green Coach purse. I can't help that I love me some designer purses and I also like bright colors. So what else is in there?
*My trusty notebook- sometimes I have weird dreams or just random ideas that pop into my head and for that I need this notebook
*Highlighters, red pen, and sticky notes- for editing
*Target Gift cards- 6 months still counts as a newlywed, right?
*Antacid tablets- I'm pregnant with heartburn, it happens
*Pens- I tend to pocket them wherever I go
*Hand sanitizer- Can never be too careful
*Ipod Mini- If it's not broke, why fix it? It gets me my music and I like nostalgia.
*Checkbook- Because sometimes I buy things that they wont take credit card for
*Wallet- To keep my money and ID in.
*LG Rumor 2- Because the hubby is still holding the smartphone over my head
*Keys to my 2008 Cobalt- Because a girl's gotta drive.
So what does my purse say about me? What's in your purse? And more importantly what's in your character's purse?
