1k Words for the Day: Jo’s Bike

This is Jo’s bike. We store it in the same place as the lawnmower and when I moved it out of the way to get the mower the other day it got me thinking. Jo’s bike says a lot about him. A LOT. I don’t want to turn this blog into my ‘I talk all about Jo because he doesn’t even like privacy or anything’ place, but it did occur to me that my characters belongings (or one or two primary ones at least) are likely to say as much about them as this bike does about Jo. It’s one of those things that I’ve heard said (or implied) before and always just sort of nodded and smiled, but Jo’s bike really solidified it in my brain and made it real. I think I get it now. I’m looking forward to seeing how that understanding will play into the new first draft of Shadows I’ll be starting soon 🙂
