WHO AM I?

who-am-i-001

I think everyone has been asking that question once…what if you were to ask yourself that question once again, what would you answer?

I have been pondering on it for a while and came up with quite a list in my mind:

– I am a Child of God

– I am saved through my Lord and Savior

– I am a wife of an amazing husband (even if life is never easy-God never said it would be-we have a great savior as an anchor in our marriage)

– I am a mom of three (hopefully, God’s willing more!) awesome children

– I am a writer. i would spend my entire time writing novels if I could. (Time issues!)

– I am now a distributor of It Works products (Natural beauty products, awesome by the way! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

– I am pro-life and I stand for The Bible

– I am fragile and strong

– I am quiet and noisy

………………………….and the list goes on and on and on

But truly WHO AM I?

As you create your protagonist, antagonist, and characters, are you making a list of how they are? Or who they’re supposed to be? Their evolution throughout your story?

KEEP IN MIND their evolution through the story, just like you & me, we grow as we move on, day after day.

Don’t make your characters flat with no flavor.

Don’t give all the information at once, give us some crumbs throughout the story so we discover the protagonist as we read along.ย Per instance, we see a protagonist as strong and determined, just to discover in the next chapter that he/she is fragile and have a nervous breakdown…you need to balance everything and give us a pallet of emotions!

As for the final “Who am I”, let us discover the big picture at the end! ๐Ÿ™‚

About N. M. Thomas

I was born in the West of France, a region I like a lot. We moved around a lot with my parents and ended up in Paris area when I was five. I lived around Paris area until I was twenty one and decided to move to England to improve my English (yes, just like that!) It wasn't easy to be in a country and a part of Britain itself (East Yorkshire)where I could not understand people talking to me. The accent was so important that it took me about a year to become fluent. I stayed there for four years and decided to go back home to Paris. I met my husband, who is American, and finally, only stayed just over a year in France as we moved to the United States. I've always loved literature and foreign languages. I speak fluent French and English, and know some Russian, Italian, Spanish and German. I started to write poems when I was a teenager. My dad actually influenced me a lot, he used to write beautiful poems in French (and I keep telling him he should publish them!)So, I carried on writing poems until I decided to start writing books. I've got two amazing children who keep me on my toes all day long so I only get some time to write at night, but I would not change that for the whole world! And I find inspirations from the music I listen, Lifehouse, Casting Crows, Fireflight and others, but also and mainly from instrumental music, original movie soundtracks (those I love!)
