Oh, to tool around in one of the new Camaros. To show up to soccer practice in this thing would be soooo cool.
Of course I know they're impractical, but a girl can still dream, can't she??
When I write, I put a lot of thought into what my characters drive. For me, a car defines a character's personality. For instance, Eric, my hero in my latest work in progress, drives a new model Mustang (like the above photo only black with a gray racing stripe. He's an alpha hero who needed a big car to go with his big personality.
An instense businessman would drive a BMW or a Mercedes.
A playboy would drive a Porsche.
John, the reclusive Sheriff in Redemption, drove a pick-up truck.
Kate, my wild heroine in Deception, drove a Jeep Wrangler.
Hope, my desperate heroine in Redemption, drove a staid compact car.
I bet just by telling you what kind of cars my heroes and heroines drove, you could figure out their personalities.
What do I drive? Well, I'm a busy mom with three kids. I drive a mini-van, of course! My husband, an alpha if I've ever met one, drives a Jeep Wrangler.
What do you drive and how does it reflect your personality?
