Freddie, one of the main characters in my novel Extinguish, is a unique character. He’s both fun and difficult to write about. In an attempt to better understand his silent personality, and to give him a more authentic “voice”, I started writing little short fictions from his perspective that I eventually dubbed “Freddie Monologues”.
Below are the six short background stories I ended up writing. These are set about six months before my novel begins and give a little insight as to why Freddie is the way he is. The stories are interconnected, but hopefully (if I’ve done my job right) they should be readable on their own.
FM 1: Talk to Me
FM 2: Run
FM 3: Storms
FM 4: Overprotective
FM 5: Questions Without Answers
FM 6: Why?
