Welcome back you beautiful people you!
Today I’ll be answering some questions on a character from the novel I’m currently reading (The Flywheel). This is a blog meme hosted by:
This will be my first time doing this challenge, and I’m pretty excited to get to know my characters better, and to be able to share this with all of you. If you’re interested in joining, please do, it’s never too late. For more information, visit the websites above, and let’s get into this post!
But first, just so you're on the same page.. "Seventeen-year-old Delilah's crazy life is about to get crazier. Ever since her father took of overseas, she's been struggling to run the family's cafe without him AND survive High School. But, after a misjudged crush on one of the cool girls, Del has become the school punchline. With all that's on her plate, she barely has time for her favourite distraction- spying on the beautiful Rosa, who dances flamenco at the tapas bar across the road. All this leaves Del grappling with some seriously curly questions. Is it okay to break the law to help a friend? How can a girl tell another girl she likes her without it ending in humiliation and heartbreak? And-the big one- is it ever truly possible to dance in public without falling over?
- What are they addicted to/can’t live without?
- Name 3 positive and 3 negative qualities about your character.
- Are they holding onto something they should get rid of?
- If 10 is completely organized and 1 is completely messy, where do they fall on the scale?
- What most frustrates them about the world they live in?
- How would they dress for a night out? How would they dress for a night in?
- How many shoes do they own, and what kind?
- Do they have any pets? What pet do they WISH they had?
- Is there something or someone that they resent? Why and what happened?
- What’s usually in their fridge or pantry?
1- Delilah is head over heels in love with Rosa, the impossibly gorgeous flamenco dancer from the bar across the road. She can’t live without her, but she hasn’t yet mustered up the courage to admit her feelings, so settles with just watching her dance from across the street.
2- Positive- Feisty, brave and a real fixer upper.
Negative- Doesn’t always admit it when she needs help, ignores her feelings, puts things off until she finds herself in real trouble.
3- Yes, Del is running the family cafe while her father is off holidaying in god knows where. Del lies to him and he believes her when she says that she is just fine and running the cafe on weekends. However, this is not the case as Del had fired the ex manager of the cafe earlier. When she is told that the Flywheel has no money left, less than none, in fact, she holds off closing it down immediately, even when she is warned to do so immediately or lose her flat too.
4- Probably a five. Delilah is messy, but in a ‘I couldn’t take care of myself if you paid me let alone a damn cafe but I’ll try anyway sort of way’ haha!
5- Del is most frustrated by the way the cafe is going in terms of business as well as the imminent closure and lack of business. Her parents, most specifically her mother, who, in a moment of middle aged passion (TOTALLY NOT MY WORDS) ran off with another man and started getting it up ETC ETC. *AHEM TMI* excuse me kids (;
6- Del doesn’t really do fancy, at all. Ever. Not even when she goes on a sort-of but not really date to the Tapas bar where the impossibly gorgeous Rosa works. She just wishes she did! (Fat load of good that does, but who am I to judge? ;D)
7- How many shoes does Del own? *Thinks and thinks and thinks*
*10 minutes later* That wasn’t REALLY talked about, so I’m assuming sneakers and, well, school shoes again. No expectations and you can’t be dissapointed!
8- Del has no pets, and that’s a damn good thing because she’d probably kill them accidentally.
(She’s a good girl but how much responsibility can one person handle!? I can definitely see her as a dog person though.)
9- Del resents her mother as she left her and her father by themselves for most of her childhood while she was off having fun with another man but then came back and tried to act all motherly as if she still played a role in their lives.
10- There wasn’t much on Del’s home life in the book, let alone what’s in her fridge, but at the cafe they made lots of sandwiches so yep. *realises how weird this sounds*
Yeah, lots of bread and fillings.. and oh oh! Pizza, lots and lots of that yummy goodness. Wine too, cause there’s nothing better than being drunk off your head.
