RTW -- Fictional Friends

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
If you went to high school with your characters, would you be friends?

I'd definitely be friends with Kaye. We're both shy and we both love horses. I think we'd become friends right away, but grow apart as we grew up. I'd want to get away and she'd want to stay in Nevada. We might try to stay in touch, but I don't think it would last long with either of us.

I wouldn't be friends with Skylar, but I might have a secret crush on him. Pre-BB Skylar would be a bad boy, a fleeting crush for me. I'd be in love with post-BB Skylar.

As for Belle, I don't think we could ever be friends. She's based on a mixed-up sophomore at my school and we just wouldn't get along. Belle and I would be unlikely to share viewpoints on most things and the arguments would never allow us to be friends.

I wouldn't be friends with mine protag starts out as introverted and uninteresting as I was when I was 13. So it'd just be like sticking your tongue out a mirror image.
