What is October without a little writing challenge to spice it up a bit? This month I am participating in the October Memoir and Backstory Blog Challenge hosted by Jane Ann McLachlan. So, every day during the month of October for 25 days–that’s 25 posts, writing about years 1-25 of life. It can be my life, my MC’s life (backstory is always good to see where a character is headed and the reasons for it), or maybe even one of my kids. My kids are still little and I wouldn’t get very far with them…
Here is my YEAR 1 from the perspective of John Warren (one of my MCs)
John Warren was born on April 25, 1973 to Carole and Dan Warren. Carole was a stay at home mom and Dan was a soldier in the Vietnam War. Dan wasn’t around that first year of John’s life, but John was spoiled as an only child. He walked early and was moving around well before his first birthday. His mom often gave him treats like ice cream, pie, or cookies, and he developed a fondness for sweets.

I appreciate the short-and-sweet-ness of your post.
What type of novel is John from?
YA Paranormal romance. He’s a guardian angel that used to be human. When he became an angel, his past was erased from his memory. All he kept was his name. A lot of who he is, is influenced by his past,so I thought it’d be interesting to figure out who he was before he died. But he dies young, so some of these posts will be of his time as a new angel. I hope that wasn’t too confusing.
Ah. This is interesting in explaining your posts. Thanks.
Nicely done, I like his “fondness for sweets”.
