Finally remembered to write this.
This character developed from walking while trying to make myself as small as possible. After wandering around campus all scrunched up for a while, I found myself feeling ready to burst. Being so small just made me want to be bigger than I’ve ever been.
Lydia was born.
Her mom left, her dad got sick. Someone had to take care of him, so at 17, she quit school and started work at the factory. She’s now 19 and just wants to achieve something with her life. She wants to be someone. Someone important. Someone people know. Someone people care about. The factory is so dull and confining. She’s ready to burst.
