Part of writing fiction is knowing your characters. Of course you already know their ages, names and physical characteristic.

  • Did they rip off the wrapping paper? Or did they take their time?
  • Did they write a thank you note or thank people in person?

I'm hoping to have a few free minutes later today to figure out the answer to all these questions and more. My real life kids are busy with their new toys, giving me some time to think and write. It's a great gift for a busy mom.

What about your characters? What gifts would they receive?
