Beautiful People--September 2016: Joey Judson

Hi people!
Beautiful People is a monthly link-up to help writers learn more about their characters, and to help others learn about the characters. ;)  So, today, I will be doing Josiah (Joey) Judson.

How did you come up with this character?
Umm… good question. ;P  It's hard to tell how you come up with characters; it's like you get the story idea, and suddenly there they are!  Josiah was named after a cousin of mine. :)

Have they ever been starving? Why? And what did they eat to break the fast?
Um, not that I know of. ;)

Do they have a talent or skill that they’re proud of?
Oh yes, he's the fastest wheelchair racer in town. B-)
He'll race Katie while she's on foot, and can win at least half the time.

List 3 things that would make them lose their temper.
1. Bullying.  Joey will always stand up for kids that are bullied, and sometimes he says things that he later regrets.
2.  Discrediting; it drives Joey nuts when people seem to think that he can't do as much or that he isn't as intelligent as "normal" people because he's wheelchair-bound.
3. Jerry (Thanks to Faith P. for suggesting!).  They're siblings; need I say more? B-)

What is their favourite type of weather? Least favorite?
Favorite is… cold, fresh air that is almost cold enough to make your lungs burn.
Least favorite: hot and muggy; the kind of weather that after you get sweaty, you can't dry off without a towel.

What is their Hogwarts house and/or MBTI personality?
I had to look up what a Hogwarts House is. ;P  Joey's Hogwarts House is… 

Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the unknown future?
Present problems.  One day at a time; otherwise, how would he have handled polio?

What is their favourite thing to drink?
Orange juice. He's loved it ever since he was little. ;)

What is their favourite color? Least favorite?
Favorite: Green.
Least favorite: Orange.  I know, his favorite drink is orange juice, but that doesn't mean he likes the color.  Thankfully, that's never changed his tastes. ;P

What is a book that changed their life?

The Bible, of course! ;)
That wraps up September's Beautiful People!  I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  What say you?  Shall I do October's?
Thanks for reading!


  1. Oh, this was fun to read! You should definitely to October's. ;) Haha, that's funny that his favorite drink is Orange Juice but he doesn't like the color orange!

    1. Ok, I'll plan to. ;)
      That part was rather interesting, but it's true! Joey is quite the character. ;)

  2. Fun post, Kaitlyn! I love reading the 'Beautiful People' posts :D I really need to start doing them!!

    1. Thanks, Livi! :D
      YES!!! Do Ryder!!! I really want to know more about him; he's awesome.

  3. I enjoyed this post so much, Kaitlyn!! Awww, I love the talent/skill :) Orange juice? Um...no thanks, Joey. ;)
    Do Octobers!!!

    1. Thanks, Faith; I enjoyed yours, too. XD I might use your idea for October's; that ok with you? ;)
      Tsk, tsk, tsk, Faith. *Shakes head* Joey is disappointed. And pleased. He's pleased you like his amazing skill of wheelchair racing, but orange juice? *Sigh* he's not happy that you don't share his obsession. ;P

    2. *looks around suspiciously* What idea for October's?

      *sigh* Sorry, Joey. I'll take apple or grape juice instead XD

    3. The idea you had of having Joshua do it with you. That looked like so much fun XD

    4. Oooohhhhh. Yes of course! #duh I would love to see that! (*whispers* Do Joey again...)


Feel free to ask a question! I'll be sure to reply to your comment!
