Love Your Main Character - Exercise 3

Writing Exercise: What is your main character's idiosyncrasy? Share in Comments Section. 
My response is at bottom.

Idiosyncrasy --  an individualizing quality or characteristic of a person or group, and is often used to express eccentricity or peculiarity ("a peculiar temperament" or "habit of body").

Danya Larson's Idiosyncrasy --

Danya unconscientiously touches and twists the pearl ring on her right hand, especially when she is nervous or anxious. The ring belonged to her late mother. Danya's father gave her the ring when she was 16 years old, along with a pearl necklace and earrings. Danya has worn the ring ever since.  


  1. I love the name of your character! Great job!

  2. My heart just breaks for Danya!

  3. Thanks Rebecca. I wanted a unique name, but one that wasn't too weird.

    Brianna, Yeah, I know. I've figured out what she wants through these 3 exercises...her family back. This gave me a great idea for the future in my book!


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
