This is my first Words on Wednesday post – I thought I’d do it & see how it goes. I wasn’t sure whether to do a creative piece or just describe one of my characters – so I thought I would describe Jimmy James. Here goes – five minutes of writing!
Jimmy James is a character I created one night when I was frustrated about my boys not changing their socks. He is a 9 year old boy who loves his football and he is not great in Maths.
He has a little brother and lives with his Mum in a house with an open plan living area, one that is perfect for socks to make a mess! Their home has a large back yard, perfect for kicking the footy around.
He has short, brown hair and freckles on his face. His brown eyes have a cheeky glint that betray his wonderful sense of the absurd as well as his cheeky mind. He is slim and sporty.
Jimmy James is a mix of my two sons and some of their friends. With so much inspiration, there is the potential for a number of different stories about Jimmy James, his brother and their friends.
