When you're a writer deeply immersed in a project, you can't get that project out of your head. So of course, I started thinking about what kinds of secrets my characters would mail in if they were to send something to Post Secret. Then I decided to make some postcards and share them with you, because, well...their secrets are more fun than mine. The whole thing was a great character exercise, because not only did I have to consider the secret itself, but also the design of the postcard, fonts they would use, etc. For example, if I had written that first secret, it would have had some hearts or a prettier font, but that character wouldn't have used those things. And I never would have sent in a secret that looked as messy as that third one. (I might be slightly crazy for thinking this hard about things. I'm OK with that. The best part is my novel takes place in the future, and I don't even think P.S. will be around 400 years from now.)
I would have posted these on Sunday, to coincide with the regular update on the Post Secret blog. But Sundays around these parts mean Sunday Funday, and I have some great links set up for tomorrow. I couldn't skip it this week. So I'm calling it Saturday Secrets! And in keeping in the anonymous tradition of P.S., I'm not going to say who belongs to the secrets, either. Enjoy!
Feel free to post some of your character's secrets in the comments!
