All Hallows Writing Tag
Welcome to the the ALL HALLOWS WRITE tag!
#1 – Provide a BRIEF description of your novel before starting.
Dying Thoughts - Sixth Change is a young adult paranormal, crime and mystery book. It's the sixth book in the Dying Thoughts series. Tara has a gift that allows her to see the last moments of someone's life when she touches something that used to be belong to them. This book follows her past secondary school and into college after her life has made a complete 180 to how it was before. She has new friends, her dad is back in the music business and Tara is recovering following the events of Fifth Secret. The only problem is there's someone attacking young women, and with every new victim, the attacks escalate. Can Tara find them before they kill someone?
#2 – Don’t use the same character for more than 3 answers.
It’s Halloween night! What is your protagonist dressed up as?
Tara would probably be a bit of a killjoy. Halloween is more of a US tradition and more popular with young kids than teens Tara's age, but that said, her birthday falls 10 days before Halloween so an excuse for an awesome party and all she has to do is dress up? She's game. She'd probably go as a serial killer which would enable her to put the least amount of effort into it.
Who in your cast refuses to dress up and shows up at the Halloween party without a costume?
Tara, if she could get away with it, she would. As I said above, she might make the effort, but if she thought she could sneak in without having to dress up, she would.
Which character wears the most outrageous costume, and what would it be?
That would be Kaolin, she would go all out to either impress the boy she likes, or just to be the life of the party. Kaolin is a geek, but she's also someone that loves to be involved and dancing around. She'd have a brilliant costume picked out and she's wear it well. She'd probably dress up as a sexy bunny, but with a twist where the bunny has some blood dripping all over their fur. She'd spend ages making it herself and it would be more than a little risqué plus scary.
On Halloween, werewolves, vampires, and zombies are on the prowl. Which of your characters gets caught in their clutches, and which creature do they subsequently turn into?
Probably Cindy, Marie and Evelyn. They're a threesome that is always seen together. If they were walking home a little high on sugar and all dressed up, I could see all three of them running into some vampires and happily making out with them. So of course, they'd become vampires.
Who wins the contest for best costume?
Probably Kaolin because she'll have put that much thought into it.
Who hands out toothbrushes to the trick and treaters?
Colin. Tara's dad might be a rock star, but he's still a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to that kind of thing. He'd be happily handing them out and probably signing autographs for the parents!
Which two of your characters decide to pair up and do an angel/devil costume together?
Probably Evelyn and Marie. They've been best friends since they met at primary school, all the way through to secondary. I could see them both have an argument however who gets to be the devil though.
Someone is too scared to even attend the Halloween party. Who is it?
Jen. She's one of the few who came to college without her friends from secondary. She's happy to be in the group, but she'd be worried about being singled out because everyone else has their buddies.
Who overdoses on Halloween candy and ends up sick?
Lilly. Simply because her parents are really over protective of her since she's disabled, and given the chance to go wild, she would very happily.
Which character is most likely to place a curse/hex on someone and who would they curse?
Lilly would happily do that. While she's a logical person, the idea that she could hex or curse someone would please her greatly. She's unaware of Tara's gift, simply because she's so logical about this kind of thing. As to who she'd curse? That would be a spoiler!
