Q&A About Tania!

I found this Q&A on the blog Snatched from the Wind, and I really like it. It gets you thinking about your book/story characters and what their personalities are like. Here's a Q&A about my book character, Tania, from the book-in-progress, Tania's Faith!

What is her full name?
Tania Grace Burton.

Does his or her name have a special meaning? Not her first or last name. I just liked the name Tania and thought it was close to my name, Talia :-). Her middle name, Grace, is after Amazing Grace, the hymn her parents used to sing to her every night. The song also inspires Tania in a really cool way.

Does your character have a methodical or disorganized personality?Tania would probably be disorganized. Her life doesn’t go exactly how she wants it, and although she doesn’t like that, she isn’t the most organized and often acts without thinking.

Does he or she think inside themselves more than they talk out loud to their friends? (more importantly, does he or she actually have friends?)
Tania doesn’t think she is worthy of love or amazing grace, and she doesn’t believe that faith is real. She thinks lowly of herself until she receives faith and sees how she is in the King's eyes. Tania does have friends, but not in her hometown yet.

Is there something he or she is afraid of? Senkrad, never getting back home, being so dreadfully bad that no one will want her (she thinks that she is too bad for faith and love, too).

Does he or she write, dream, dance, sing, or photograph? She dreams and writes inspiring stories. In the book, she sings "Amazing Grace."
What is his or her favorite book? (or genre of books)
Her favorite books are fantasy, just like her own book.

Favorite flavor of ice cream?


Favorite season of the year?Fall. She loves the colors, weather, and beauty of the season.

How old is he/she?Twelve years old.

What does he/she do with his/her spare time?She doesn’t really have spare time in the book, but otherwise, reads her Bible, spends time with her sisters, Maggie and Rain, and just lives life out loud.

Does he/she see the big picture or live in the moment?Tania did not see the bigger picture until she had faith. So I guess living in the moment. But now that she has faith in Jesus, she strives to see the bigger picture.

Is he/she a perfectionist?It really depends on the situation.
Feel free to take these questions! They really challenge your thinking!

What does her handwriting look like? (round, slanted, curly, skinny, sloppy, neat, decorative, etc.)Round.

Favorite animal?Golden retrievers and parrots, since her dear friends Fred and Perry are a golden retriever and parrot.

Does he/she have any pets?No.

Does he/she have any siblings? How many? Where does he/she fit in?Yes, two younger sisters, Rain and Maggie. Maggie is the youngest, Rain the second oldest, and Tania the oldest.

Does he/she have a 'life verse' and if so what is it?Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Romans 8:38-39

Is he/she a Christian, or will he/she eventually find Jesus?Tania is not a Christian in the beginning, but eventually becomes one towards the end.

Does he/she believe in fairies?No.

Does he/she like hedgehogs?Not necessarily.

Favorite kind of weather?A sunshower.

Does he/she have a good sense of humor? If so what kind? (Slapstick, wit, sarcasm, etc.?)A little, but not a lot. Kind of witty.

How did he/she do in school, or any kind of education they might have had?She was homeschooled when the family lived in Kentucky, because they lived in the country far away from a school, but now that she lives in Oregon, she goes to public school.

Any strange hobbies?


Favorite writing utensil?A pencil.

What type of laugh does he/she have?A joyful, airy laugh.

Who is his/her best friend?Besides her sister, Rain and Maggie, her friends Jack and Amira. In America, she doesn’t have a best friend yet.

What is his/her family like?Her father is a very kind, devoted father who is also firm and disciplines when necessary because he understands that it will better his daughters. He is strong in faith and in love and encourages his family in both.Tania’s stepmom Carli is very kind and also rooted in faith like the father. She enjoys spending time with her daughters and doing very motherly things, like fixing their hair and painting nails with them.
Rain is Tania’s adopted sister. She is very quiet and reserved, but also kind and thoughtful, and has deep faith.
Maggie is Tania’s younger sister. She is sort of an eavesdropper, but is very fun and very girly. She loves Jesus very much.
