So here is my entry...It is short and shows the character mostly through the way she talks. Yes, she is a female, I'll give you that. And she is the narrator. Now, what do you think she looks like? (Feel free to add any other characteristics that jump out at you.)
I've never been one to brag, but my daddy was the king.
He could turn my tears into giggles just by making that face—the one where his tongue lolls out the side of his mouth and his eyes roll up—you know, where it looks like a corpse? That's the one. He had it down!
I know how he got it so good, too: he'd seen plenty of dead people. Most of them he probably killed himself. Or at least ordered it done.
But, whatever. He was my father.
Do you want to know about him? I'll be glad to tell you. I have so many wonderful stories about my dad. I'll throw in a little of the killing, too. I mean, that's interesting, right? And it'll show you how decisive he was. (makes a muscle with her arm and lowers her voice) How strong.
(giggling) Daddy was the best.
So, what do you think of her? For more blogfest entries, check out Jen's blog, Unedited: Guess that Character Blogfest.
