Thank you, Robin, for this month’s Round Robin Topic:
What is the oddest character you have every dream up, and how did he/she fit into a story?
Odd adjective, odd·er, odd·est.
differing in nature from what is ordinary, usual, or expected: an odd choice. singular or peculiar in a strange or eccentric way: an odd person; odd manners.
I seem to have eccentric people in most of my stories.
My favorite, however, is Caldwell, the cankerous cook in Brede, Rodeo Romance Book 2.
Caldwell keeps everyone on their toes. His humor is biting, but Caldwell also has a soft-spot for those he cares about. And to everyone’s amazement, he’s a bit of a Romero!
The ‘winner’ of my oddest character, should probably be awarded to Meredith, my zombie heroine in Here Today, Zombie Tomorrow. Though I must admit, even in her Zombie persona, Meredith is surprisingly normal. Perhaps this is what is ‘odd’.
How do you feel about odd characters in a novel?
What is the favorite ‘odd, oddish’ character from a novel?
