We all have personality quirks. These are part of our charm.
Some people may think that the fact I have named my three houseplants is a personality quirk. But what other modern living beings would put up with the monikers Perpetua, Magnifica, and Scholastica? When I ask my husband, “Did you water Perpetua?” he knows what I mean.
We inherited a large peace lily from one daughter’s college days, called Lord Ellington. Our daughter still living at home renamed him (I’m going with the male designation since he was a lord). The new name? Jade.
What personality quirks do you give your characters to make them come more to life?
Do those quirks reflect your own personality?
Which plant do you think is pictured? Perpetua, Magnifica, or Scholastica?
