Write Your First Novel, Week 2, Assignment One: Character Profile
Logline: An ostracized teenage girl captures the love and trust of wild red filly who she hungers to ride to victory before the naysayers can vanquish her dreams.
Name: Chelsea Resmon (Protagonist)
Description: thick, wavy, copper hair and curvy figure, green eyes
Personal History: Chelsea is being raised by a single mom. Her dad left when she was a baby, so she doesn’t remember him. She is very close with her mom. She has always been drawn to animals, especially horses.
Distinctive Personality Traits: Chelsea is a loner at her high school because the other students consider her “weird” and she knows it. She sometimes has strong emotional outbursts and flaps her hands when excited or angry. Over the years she has learned to control some of those tendencies with her mother’s help and by mostly avoiding other people. She lacks confidence and has low self-esteem, except when she’s around horses.
