Welcome to the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. I fell out last year in July due to tragedies that just kept coming. This year I am dusting myself off (again) and starting fresh. I already missed the first three weeks, but hopefully I can keep up.
This is week 4 and our topic is What is your best trait n a BBF?
That left me with a few questions. What is a BBF? Book Boy Friend? Book Best Friend? Does it mean in books I read or am writing?
I will tackle this individually. I read so many genres I look for different things in each book I read. If I am reading a mystery/thriller, I want my BBF to be tough, strong, but caring. If I am reading a romance it could be anything …a sexy billionaire, a man with a secret, a sexy cowboy, a hot detective. And if they love kids and animals ( even have one) the better.
What is the difference between a Book Boyfriend and a Book Best friend? Well, a best friend could be male or female or even four-legged. Maybe finned. Traits I like in a best friend are loyalty, honesty, and humor.
In Books, I write I try to incorporate something different in each of my characters. Some may be naive ( I have several of those), A bit cocky, witty, whatever mood fits the story. I wat to compel the reader with my characters and make them relate to them as they are their real BF’s whether that is a boyfriend or a best friend.
What is the most important trait you look for in a BBF?
Let’s go see what the other authors look forward to in a BBF and how they interpreted this topic>>>

Ah, doggone it. I missed this again. I look at the topic each week and still forget. I like the way you covered this topic, Cathy, especially for the Book Boyfriend. Cheers to a tremendous new year for you and your family.
I do Most of my blogging on the weekend. I leave a big post it on my keyboard so I go link on Wednesday or Thursday. This topic hit home for me since my Alpha reader says she always waits for my book boyfriends I send her. Maybe someday others will see them too.
Good luck getting them out there, Cathy. I’m a post-it-note lover, so I better get back to using them.
My biggest problem is my cats love them too and are bad about snatching them. LOL Thanks for the encouragement!
Cathy, I have to admit, I never thought of Book BoyFriend! To me, BFF means Best Friend Forever, and that’s how I addressed the question. But I love your take on the question because characters are so important to all of us!
I guess my dyslexia kicked in. I saw BBF not BFF though BFF was my first thought but since I thought it said BBF that is what I went for lol. glad you liked it.
