Character Interviews: Samuel "Texas" Low Fox.

A Conversation with One of My Characters.

Before we start, Sam, would you please state your name for the record? My name is Samuel Low Fox. And where does the "Texas" come from? Only one person calls me that, you know, because of the accent.

So, you're from Texas? I was raised there, but I was born in Montana.

Montana? How was that? Ha ha, I don't know. I haven't been there since I was three or four.

But you live in Florida now, right? Yeah. How did that come about? My dad just decided to move. He got offered a job during pretty much the same thing he was doing in Texas, but I guess the title sounds better in Florida.

You don't sound happy about moving? I wasn't at first. I only had a couple of months left before I graduated, so...

I understand. You say you weren't happy at first, what changed? A girl? Ha ha, yeah, isn't there always a girl?

Tell me about her. Her name is Delphine. Delphine? Kind of old-fashioned, huh? She hates it. Thinks her mom did it on purpose to ruin her life. I actually like it. It fits her. What do you mean? You say it's old-fashioned. I think she has "an old soul," as they say.

How did you meet her? We, uh, met at school. Actually, my first day of school. We had a class together. She sat in front of me. Instant connection, eh? For me, definitely. You'd have to ask her if it were the same for her.

What drew you to her? Her presence. Sounds corny, I know, but really just being around her is, it's, sort of, addicting. I sound like a stalker now, but when you spend time with her you just want to be around her all the time.

Sounds like a nice girl. She is.

I know you have to go now, so I don't want to keep you. It was nice talking to you. Nice talking to you to. Next time I'll bring Delphine and you can interview her. Ok, I'm holding you to that.

That was a character in one of my novels. It's currently in the development stage. I haven't started writing it yet.

I ran out of questions to ask him. Now I have to find questions to ask her.

One of my favorite things about writing is creating new characters so, this was really fun to me. I wrote a post called Getting Into the Mind of Your Characters over at The Writer Playground, my other blog.

As always, thank you and goodnight.
