Well well well, my dudes and dudettes. Once again I am stealing a tag. I guess that’s okay. I’ve only broken every other rule in the writer’s handbook. One more shouldn’t hurt.
(Example offences that I have committed in the writing world: the use of Riley Poole from National Treasure as a book character model (Writer’s Handbook Of Irreversible Laws page 67 section 3 paragraph 5 – punishable by being burned at the stake by Anna Willis and Libby May); using actors as character models instead of generic trash on Pinterest – Libby sued me and had me thrown in writer jail for that one. Thankfully she still brought me cookies.)
AAAANNNNNYWAAAYS. I’ve got this super duper cool writer’s tag that I am like……….
CRAZY EXCITED ABOUT.
LET US START WITH THE RULES.
Rule One . . . Thank the beautiful bloggerly chipmunk who tagged you.
Ahem. I didn’t exactly……..get tagged for this, per se. BUT, hopefully Kenzie knows I’m stealing her tag like the cool pirate I am so I can do this thang.
(Exhibit A: my pirate ship.)
Rule Two . . . Include this link — phoebeamorryce.wordpress.com/2018/10/15/voted-most-likely — in your post. ……….. cuz, yeah. Phoebe made this AMAZING tag. Thank you, Phoebe!!!
Rule Three . . . Use your OWN original characters for the tag! Don’t use a friend’s characters or the characters from your favorite fandoms. Your characters can come from any project, just so long as you’re the one who created them………… For once I am happy to follow the rules of a tag! I’ve been waiting for a tag where I can use my own characters!!!! MMEEEPPP! I’m excited now. (BONUS: Phoebe says you can even use characters from more than one book because the more the merrier, amirite?
DOUBLE BONUS: Because I am officially obsessed with the pictures of my charies, I’ll will put pictures of my characters for each of the Most Likely Awards!!!! (#HelpMeI’mLikeAProudMama)
TRIPLE DOUBLE DARE BONUS: You get to hear some about the new characters from my NEW WIP.
Yes, you heard right. Penny Wood, (not really) professional author and procrastinating extraordinaire is starting a new story.
I felt like maybe I should explain why I’m starting a new story. It’s a heartfelt, meaningful answer, and I think you’ll understand.
This is why I started a new story.
CUZ I WANTED TO.
That’s all there is too it, folks. I wanted to start a new story. And by golly did I. (More like didn’t I, because I actually haven’t, cough cough, started writing it yet. BUT I’M PLANNING FOR IT SO YADDA YADDA YADDA.)
Soooooooo yeah. We shall be hearing about my new WIP, Heirs To A Secret, in this very post. And probably, we’ll be hearing A LOT more about it in a post soon (#ComingToAWordpressReaderNearYou).
But on we go.
Rule Four . . . Tag at LEAST five bloggerly friends to do the tag, as well!
And now. For the questioning.
Most Likely to Be a Poet
JSQWFIWEHJHWENHAS! This is a hard one. But I guess when it boils down to it, it’d have to be Professor Eugene Bedell from The Summer I Saw Blue Peak.
(AHAHAHAHAHAHA YES I KNOW HE’S DOCTOR WHO. I also don’t care.)
Professor Bedell would most certainly be a poet. He’s got like, all of Shakespeare’s plays memorized by heart. He’s so dramatic. I could just see him in a pouring rainstorm reciting poetry from his gut.
My precious smol bean Eugene. He is THE LITERAL WEBSTER DICTIONARY VERSION of a cinnamon roll (#lies). I’m probably the only one who thinks so, but again, I don’t care.
Most Likely to Dance in the Rain
But in all seriousness (because this is a very serious tag), it would probably be Luna Meyers from The Summer I Saw Blue Peak.
(YEESH! THIS BOOK HAS ALREADY CLAIMED TWO CHARACTER AWARDS. Maybe I should actually start editing it again. #GoFundMeForPenny #SupportYourLocalPenny)
This. Girl. She is da bomb.com. (She’s also really annoying and immature and loud and has issues too. But who cares about that.)
But she is soooooooooo the kind of girl that would see it raining outside, yell, “IT’S RAINING!!!” and then run out there with both arms open and start spinning around. Presh.
Most Likely to Look Good in a Kilt
WHO EVEN THOUGHT OF THIS?????
(Penny’s Pointless Opinions #782,924: Scotland (or Ireland – I DON’T EVEN KNOW SOMEONE HELP ME) should have never came up with the idea of kilts. Just sayin’.)
I wasn’t expecting this one, to be honest. And to be even more honest, I don’t think kilts look good on ANYBODY, especially dudes.
So it’s kind of odd that I’m about to name one of my dude characters here.
But I’d have to say Nathan from Heirs To A Secret.
(okay now that I’ve posted this picture of him it’s kind of hurting my brain cells to picture him with a kilt. I’m regretting saying this now.)
To be the most honest, Nathan now officially hates me because all who read his story after this will see him and think, “oh, it’s the kilt boy!”
Yes, yes I do hate you Penny.
Most Likely to Get Punched in the Face
So like…….my characters are either total cinnamon rolls or jerks that are just asking to be punched.
But this award will probably have to go to……
Matt from Heirs To A Secret.
(I don’t know who made this collage. But I like it. So thank you.)
This is interesting. At first glance you wouldn’t THINK Matt is the character who’d be most likely to get punched. He’s really very serious and mature.
But…….he’s got an odd bluntness about him that often rubs people the wrong way. Like, the WRONG way.
And all I’m saying is, MAAAAAYYBEEE Nick and Elin have an issue with slapping him. A lot. Maybe.
(Btw the pic of him on the bottom left kind of looks like he just got slapped. Ironic.)
Most Likely to Drop Everything and Become a Sheep Herder
I was telling my sister about this and she told me the perfect character.
Cassandra is the crazy gal from my book, Casey Newman’s Guide To Being Funny (Even When Your Life Stinks).
The reason Cassie is so perfect for this award is because it would be just like her to take up some random hobby like this. She would just up and say, “I’m going to the highlands” (or wherever they offer sheep herding jobs) and just leave like that!!
Cassandra is amazing.
(And yeeeeeaaahhh, I know I still need to wrangle her from her book to get her to do the interview you all so kindly overloaded her with questions for. IT’S COMING, I TELL YA. JUST WAIT. Patience is a virtue, my smol beans.)
Most Likely to Be Found in the Library
That would most definitely be Ava Abbott from The Summer I Saw Blue Peak.
*watches as the few Doctor Who fans that still loved me stomp away*
For those of you who know Ava (which is like, none of you, because she wasn’t even in my first draft of The Summer I Saw Blue Peak *gasp* *slaps my own hand* Bad author!) but Ava looooooooves to read. She is such an adorable hopeless romantic who loves reading romances and sappy loves stories! And she’s always reading on her porch. #goals
Bonus fun fact no one asked for: Her favorite book is Pride And Prejudice.
Most Likely to Sleep Through an Earthquake
Oddly enough, it was hard to answer this one. But I guess I’d have to say Wyatt from Heirs To A Secret.
(CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SMOL BEAN???????)
He really just seems like the kind of kid who would go to sleep, and entire catastrophic earthquake occurs, and he would just be like, “wait, what happened?”
Wyatt is just like that. H I L A R I O U S.
(He may or may not be my OTHER cinnamon roll. Along with Eugene.)
Most Likely to Steal Food from Other Peoples’ Plates
I don’t even have to think about this one! Beck from Heirs To A Secret!!!!
Without a doubt this would be Beck. She LOVES FOOD!!! (#KindredSouls) Also she has no shame. Whoever she was with, she’d have no problem with just grabbing a handful of their fries right out of their plate and stuffing them in her mouth unapologetically.
This is why I love her. I’m beginning to lose count of how many cinnamon rolls I have.
I relate to Beck on a personal level. She is toooooooooooo much like me for her own good. Once I accidentally referred to her as Penny. (#ActuallyNotATrueStory)
But I do love my Beck and she has to be one of the characters that is the most like me, of all my characters.
Most Likely to Cheat on a Test
Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt Wyatt
Urm, I’d have to say maybe Natalie from Casey Newman’s Guide To Being Funny (Even When Your Life Stinks).
I don’t know. She just seems like someone who would cheat on a test, but then later that day feel bad about it.
*sniffs because my babiesssss are making bad decisions and I can’t stop them*
But also WYATT could be in this category.
Most Likely to Say “Oops” After Setting Something on Fire
Okay, I know but, this award has no other place than with my Wyatt.
(YES I KNOW I have more pictures of Wyatt. But this one perfectly describes him. I need more. MORE MORE MORE!!!)
This is just so totally him. This is basically a scene in my book.
(As of right now.)
I could just see him doing something crazy like playing with matches around a Christmas tree (those are highly flammable *I think*) and suddenly dropping one on there and the whole thing goes up in horrible flames. Then he’d just look back and say, “Oops.”
(AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO LOVES THIS BEAN???)
Most Likely to Open an Orphanage
Do cat orphanages count? Because I would have picked Kian from Casey Newman’s Guide To Being Funny (Even When Your Life Stinks).
But if it was a human orphanage, it would DEFINITELY be Rosemary from The Summer I Saw Blue Peak.
Because she is like, sweetnesssssssssss. I love her so much.
Most Likely to Run off with the Circus
Probably Elin from Heirs To A Secret.
(Can anyone tell I like collages?)
Elin seems like the perfect fit for this because she seems so, random. And also a little circus/acrobat/flashy/BAM kinda personality. (Which might explain why she has an excruciatingly hard time not slapping Matt.)
I could just SEE this happening. There goes Elin, running off to the circus again.
Most Likely to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse
Hands down. Nick Hadley from Heirs To A Secret.
Don’t let his old age fool you. This guy is……ahem. KICK. BUTT.
LJADOWHEFWHDGAGSSK! I’m just saying that the zombies would have to worry about HIM coming to take them down.
Nick is one to watch out for. His being old gives him the perfect alibi. You THINK he’s just this sweet old man and then BAM you just got jujitsued in the gut.
(Which is AGAIN why he may have a problem slapping Matt. #DejaVu)
Most Likely to Fake Their Own Death
This is going to be kind of random but I’d have to say Jules from Casey Newman’s Guide To Being Funny (Even When Your Life Stinks).
Jules would do this, I think. She’d actually be pretty happy with it too, because if everyone thought she was dead they’d stop texting her and bothering her.
Most Likely to Die and Haunt Their Friends
Two words. RILEY. PORSCHE.
Like, I don’t know anyone who would do this more than Riley.
He would do weird stuff like make stuff float and wake people up on Christmas Eve and tell them he’s the Ghost Of Christmas High School Reunion (which sounds like a terrible nightmare.) He’d have a blast.
GOODNESS GRACIOUS THAT WAS LONG. But that’s the most fun I’ve had in a while.
Oh yeah! I need to tag some of you lovelies to do this!!!!
And the people I tag are……
*pulls out little paper card*
Libby May – *glares at you because you never do anything I tag you for* (#IDon’tEvenKnowWhyI’mTaggingYou)
Jo – pleeeeeease do this I need your answers.
Pearl and Anna – you BOTH have to answer
And of course if any of you would like to steal this tag you be the sneaky sneeks you are and do it!!! Just please link your post back to me because I desperately want your answers. (Penny Brownie points if you add pictures of your charies too.)
What did you think of my tag? How do you like my characters? Did you unfollow my blog because Matt Smith is my character model? Will you be doing the tag? Talk to me!
