OK prepare yourself. This is gonna be really cool. As some of you are aware, I'm off work at the minute with a broken ankle and theres only so much gaming a man can do. So..I started a writing a new book. Its probably gonna be the coolest thing I've ever written. So far I've written the outline and the prologue, without giving to much away I offer you all this forum in which you can "audition" to become a charachter in my book. I will post the results of the auditions on friday and anyone who competes will get a mention. To give you a flavour, its a neo political thriller set in..actually I won't give it away yet. The main charachter will be a guy, although I think his love interest has a more interesting role. Plus there are many other parts with excellent personalities. I'm actually worried I won't fit it all into one book..anyway get into charachter and impress each other. Have fun! [Cool]

/loves a challenge.

Kindly explain what you mean by audition...

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Well, actually, I'm a pretty little green-eyed schoolgirl with blonde ringlets and a gingham dress -- I only masquerade as a greasy, thirty-stone, middle-aged, sweat-saturated, cigar-chewing, ex-trucker, Nam Vet, Unabomber-shack-dwelling, crack-addict, fugative from Buttplug, Idaho. Folks ain't so scared of my cunning disguise. [Smile]

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

Thanks spungo! I forgot to include those few descriptive items in my profile...

Well, to describe my character...

I'm a sexy brunette woman with a fetish for flakes and honeycomb ice cream and I come from a long line of samurai warriors and as a result, I have a very naughty habit of keeping a rather large Katana in my PVC lingerie...

Would certainly make for a unique love interest ha ha.

By the way, I would love to know more about your book. Is there not anything more you could possibly spill?

Me? I'd like to have the "girl nobody notice" part - just does her little things when all is fine, gets the job done when everyone else is panicking. Then goes back to her little things. An efficient executant, if you prefer. (You know, that kind of job is underrated - while the hero has to kick and break all around to reach his goal, the "efficient executant" knows from the start which button to push, and when to push it to get the most of it.)

That would be pretty close to the real me; I never work better than under pressure. But truth is, when I get cranky, I'm hard to ignore... (Does the part includes insulting the superior when he messes up in the worst of the heat? All the better!)

Oh, and I wouldn't mind being in the villains' camp. This is fiction we're talking, so why not have some fun while at it?

I would love to be the character what gets killed in the first scene of the book. But nothing is better then the main character getting killed in the first scene.

If you need anything for your book - then just ask especially if you want a character what needs to die.

So i'm guessing the best way to describe my character would be a 6.5 tall man with wide shoulders, brown hair, blue eyes, white (sorry didn't want to attempt to spell today) coming out of a dark corner only to be shot on site by the main character. Upon the shooting death of me the main character would say some witty remark. There would be no need for a personality description of me since i get shot. - that would be my vision if i was ever in a book.

oos sorry sounds like I wasn't very specific. Just describe your charachter and go off on one in charachter. Just whip up a mad speech or have fun in general. Any aspiring james bond types out there? Even an austin powers?

I'm the guy whose life story just doesn't make sense.
He claims to be a scot, but he's very vague when questioned on ordinary aspects of daily life in Scotland.
He explains this by claiming to have lived most of his life in Australia, but he knows almost nothing about Australian sports.
He corresponds with a strange mixture of people from all over the world, many of these conversations seem to be in some sort of code.

Does anyone know what Osama bin Laden would look like after a haircut, beard-trim, and large bottle of hair-dye?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Interesting...of course knowing nothing about sports doesn't mean hes not australian. He could just be unusual. This gives the charachter a is he or isn't he perspective. Very clever.

Congrats, you were the best of the bunch, and your backstory actually fitted a big charachter. Your charachter will be exactly as you described, plus I really get to play with her as shes the female supporting lead, who gets fake dead/kidnapped as collateral. That tells you she will be put through the ringer emotionally, but doesn't give anything juicy or interesting away.
I'm sure your popping the champagne as I type...

Cool! Now I have no choice but to read it when finished. (Do I get a complimentary copy? [Big Grin] )

The girl next door that everyone thinks is just a sweet shy little thing but really she spends her time stalking people. She may come across as the friendly type but her mental stability is highly questionable.

That's the best I can do. I'm not much of a character developer or writer, but I tried.
