Happy Saturday to everyone!
Today’s prompt is What is a quirk or habit your character has developed but is unaware of?
Zeb has the habit of wondering about weather (aka squinting at the horizon) when talking to someone or suddenly noticing his shoes are untied (aka looking down). He also has developed the habit of coughing to fill silence or to give him a pause from speaking. That one started off intentional but is now a very strong habit he doesn’t think about much any more. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know how to sit up straight either. Then, over the course of the story, he develops the habit of checking the rear view mirrors a lot and always looking over his shoulder.
Charlie has the habit of bouncing her leg when sitting and rocking on the balls of her feet when nervous and always sitting on the edge of her seat (a new habit developed). As for a more random one, she also always looks into windows of stores when passing.
Sam has the habit of running his hand through his hair flexing his jaw when thinking and he’s the type of guy that would naturally be the one to start walking fast in a large group and end up in the front first to hail cabs, first to push the button under a light, and the first to step into the road to cross it.
Walter, one of my side characters, has the subconscious habit of looking at the person he’s passing on the road whenever he drives (which I personally find hilarious and I only just now realized ahaha).
