The weather is finally getting warmer. This week’s weather makes me think New England skipped spring and went straight into summer.
I’m not a summer girl. I prefer fall and winter, the cooler seasons giving me an excuse to stay cozy in an over-sized sweatshirt instead of sweltering in the summer heat. Spring isn’t too bad, when it happens to be here, but I could totally live without the allergies.
Ever take those online personality quizzes that tell you what season you are? Summer was always the bright, optimistic child while winter was the quiet, pensive individual. Many of them were no-brainers, allowing you to pick which answer corresponded with which result — if your favorite color was green or pink, you’d be heading toward spring.
If you had to describe your characters as a season, which ones would they be? Would you follow the more obvious routes, like a redhead being fall, or would you prefer to mix up the common traits of the season, like comparing the twinkle in your character’s eye to the sparkle of ice rather than sunlight?
