Isn’t it exciting how many things can influence ‘mood’. A beautiful snowfall fresh and new fills children with excitement as they eagerly dress warmly to make snow angels as adults partake in an enthusiastic snowball fight. A crackling fire in the fireplace sets the tone for a relaxed comfortable evening filling you with a warm glow.
Perhaps a dark overcast sky sets the tone for a chapter in your novel, either ominous and eerily compelling denoting danger, or as the forerunner for villainous antics or denotes an upcoming storm that reeks havoc on your hero’s efforts to save the day.
A warm summer sky and you’re on your way to fun and games on the shore or swimming and playing games in the pool or happily skiing on a clear smooth lake complete with picnic.
Suddenly a favourite character becomes sullen, angry, depressed or moody as a dilemma suddenly threatens to overtake their security and they act out accordingly.
Most probably it’s a teenager going through the throws of becoming an adult, happy one moment, somber or morose the next, the world as they know it is coming to an end as a friendship fizzles or an eminent breakup is about to occur.
I think Eeyore was my all time favourite moody type and the voice simply enhanced his persona.
Aaaanyway, hope you enjoyed my take on “moody” types. Wink wink nudge nudge hey hey!
