Eldest is in love. He’s been dating a beautiful, young lady for six months. They watch movies, hold hands and talk late into the night. I’m sure there are other things going on that a mom doesn’t want to know about, but the point is, he’s completely head-over-heels in love.
Just like I am.
Sadly, it’s with one of my characters.
While most of his personality is shown through actions and his physical description is virtually nil, he’s a heart-throb like no other. And it’s not just me. My crit partners nearly swoon when he comes on the scene.
Readers, has your heart ever pitter-pattered over a character? If so, what traits send your ticker tripping?
Writers, have you ever written a character that steals your heart? Do you feel as odd about it as I do?!?!?
Inquiring minds want to know.
