Tomorrow is my mom's birthday, so we've been scrambling over the past few days to buy presents and put together something (note the extreme vagueness, just in case she's reading this now. Hi mum!) for tomorrow night. In my week attempt to tie this back to writing, I was wondering, how does your MC celebrate their birthday?
I always order Indian food to go, and sit on the couch and watch a movie (preferably something funny and/or stupid). Harry Potter sits in his room at the Dursleys', eagerly awaiting presents and news from Ron and Hermione. Bella Swan probably stares at Edward all day.
Whoever you are and whatever your idea of a good time (ie: staring at Robert Pattinson) is, what you do on your birthday (and what you ask for, as presents) says a lot about you. The MC of the book I just finished, Lucy, spends her birthdays eating junk food and watching trashy movies at her best-friend-who's-a-human's house, then comes home to perform some birthday rituals with her Gran. Witches--crazy stuff.
How does your main character celebrate their birthday?
