Beautiful People: Faithful Speceam

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Writting isn't really the theme of this blog. But, though you all may not know this, I am a writer. (note: I am not a published author yet, but I hope to be someday.) :) And, I feel the need to open up the door to the soul of my main character Faithful Speceam (Speh-SHE-am) in my NaNo novel of last November, "A Whisper in the Woods". (used to be titled, "A War For Love") So today, I am linking up with Beautiful People. Here goes! :)

1. What is their favourite type of shoes?
Faith is less than unenthusiastic about what she wears. (opposite of me) All that matters is that she is clothed and confortable. But when it comes down to it, the pair she loves most would be her leather boots. They are a simple pair of shoes, but finely crafted. 

2. Do they journal? 
Journaling is a luxury Faith could never afford. Her time is clipped and precious. It has been a long time since she has even held a pen in her hand, for the need is so little. 

3. What’s their favorite animal? 
A dog named Rose. Faith and this dog have a special sort of relationship, budded in Faith's childhood, and in full bloom when the story begins. 

4. What does their average day look like?
Faith awakens somewhere between 5:45 and 6:00 every morning, eats a quick breakfast, (consisting of one piece of coarse bread and a cup of water) and leaves for the woods/the pasture. She spends the majority of her day in the pasture, talking with Morality, and taking care of the sheep. When she returns home it's near dark, and she usually eats a bowl of cold soup her mother has left out for her, and goes to her room. Mrs. Speceam doesn't bother to ask after her, and spends the evening in her own bedroom. Often a day will pass without a word going between the two. 

5. Night owl or morning person? (Optional: What time do they usually wake up? Go to bed?) 
Faith is a morning person, by all means. She does her best thinking and planning in the morning, and thrives on a good night's sleep, though she rarely gets it. Faith wakes up around 6:00 every morning, and gets in bed between 11:30 and 12:00. Usually, though, she spends more time in deep though in bed, and often will not fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning. 

6. Do they have a sweet tooth? 
Yes. Faith is partial to anything sugary. :)

7. What colors are their bedroom? 
Faith's bedroom in on the second story of the rickety little house, and is painted a faded, pale color, that was once a vibrant turquoise. 

8. Can they cook? 
Faith never learned to cook. And, sadly, never cared either. She found her niche in the forest. 

9. What is their favorite household chore? 
Though you can rarely see her doing chores (her mother does most of them), Faith dislikes sweeping the least. There is something so satisfying about a freshly swept floor. 

10. Favorite kind of tea?
Though tea is scarce, on a rare occasion Faith has had lemon tea, and adores it. If you gave her a cup of lemon-infused tea with a drop or two of honey, you would probably be her friend for life. :)

So there you have it. Hopefully you have gotten to know Faithful a little better, and hopefully you enjoyed learning about her. :)
