30 Days of Character Development: Cascio (Day 25)

25.) Describe your character’s hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?

Her hands are long and elegant, tended to often at least once a week. She goes to get a manicure when she can and lotions them every night before bed. Just because she spends all day with her hands in dirt does not mean she has to look like a savage.

24.) What might your character’s ideal romantic partner be?

She needs someone she can trust, which makes it difficult because after Eddie she rarely trusts anyone. He definitely must be a possible father figure to Penny, accept that she is a single mother and won’t force her to put him above her daughter. 

He must be employed, a provider, capable of defending his family when needed. People think that since Miranda works in a boutique she’d be sick of flowers; this is a lie. She loves it when a man brings her flowers, but only when it’s the right ones.

22.) If your character could time travel, where would they go?

Possibly to a time before she had to worry about losing Penny. In her own timeline, she’d visit her in the maternity ward, those years when she was just a baby and craving her touch. 

Other choices would be back in time to when men were gentlemen and treated women with respect, or into the future when this whole women’s right ordeal and we would finally be treated as equals.

20.) Does your character have any irrational fears?

I keep having a problem with irrational because I think there’s nothing irrational about having a fear of something but here goes.

She’s constantly afraid of having the past catch up with her, or someone finding out about Eddie. She’s also afraid of losing her daughter or having her become the woman Miranda turned out to be.

18.) Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

Miranda knows the basics to cooking: rice, chicken, soup. She doesn’t really expand much more than that, unless it’s one of her remedies for Penny’s sick health. Her specialty is her chicken soup, which she does sometimes add the odd spices.
