OPTIONAL IWSG DAY QUESTION: What personal traits have you written into your character(s)?
Whether I mean to or not, all my characters are Canadian, so I guess I bring my country to the table. I don’t think we are much different than anyone else, but some might not agree.
Yeah. We say, ‘eh.’
Makes me think back to Bob and Doug McKenzie played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. Clip below if you wanna see… but I warn you its from the ’80s so you might want to pass. 😉
If you’re my age you might remember them.
Some other Canadians you may know:
Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Pamela Anderson, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Kim Cattrall, Tommy Chong, Michael J. Fox, Brendan Fraser, Jill Hennessy, Joshua Jackson, Eric McCormack, Howie Mandel, Mike Myers, Catherine O’Hara, Matthew Perry, Jason Priestley, Christopher Plummer, Keanu Reeves, Ryan Reynolds, Caroline Rhea, Kiefer Sutherland, Donald Sutherland, Meg Tilly, Bryan Adams, k.d. lang, Avril Lavigne, Leslie Nielsen, Corey Haim, Carrie-Anne Moss.
And my most favorite—William Shatner!
Canada’s birthday was on July 1st, so I guess I’m a little hyped up. Happy Independence Day (tomorrow) to all my US friends.
Can you tell I’ve been doing my best to avoid thinking about writing? No worries. I figure my mojo can’t stay away forever.
How’ve you done this month? Share some happy with me.
