I hate you, Fuller James.
I hate your floppy hair and your lopsided grin and those laughing blue eyes that always seem to be laughing at me.
I hate that you’re the most popular guy in school and I’m still the girl who sneezed and spit out her retainer on someone at a middle school dance. It’s just such a cliché.
I hate that I’m being forced to tutor you in English and keep it a secret from everyone. Because otherwise it might put our basketball team’s chances at winning State in jeopardy, and even though I hate you, I love basketball.
I hate that it seems like you’re keeping a secret from me…and that the more time we spend together, the less I feel like I’m on solid ground. Because I’m starting to realize there’s so much more to you than meets the eye. Underneath it all, you’re real.
But what I hate most is that I really don’t hate you at all.
First, I like to find a picture online of someone who resembles the character I’ve created in my head. This helps me visualize them in scenes and describe them to my readers. After I find an image that closely resembles the perfect book boyfriend, I create two lists, one of the character’s strengths and another of his flaws. This helps me mold him into a real, relatable, and YA-worthy book boyfriend.
Once I have his looks, personality, etc. sorted, I create an arc for his character. What are his goals? What’s holding him back or straight up stopping him from achieving these goals? What will he need to do to succeed? With these answers and the information above, I have everything I need to craft the perfect book boyfriend!
I hope you check out I HATE YOU, FULLER JAMES, where you can meet my latest book boyfriend, Fuller James!
Thank you so much for having me!
Kelly Anne Blount xoxo
