Dear readers, I need help! I’m soon to rewrite the first scene of my book, DREAMTHIEF, which is a story about a psychologist who helps nerdy people conquer their real-world mental problems such as depression and OCD’s. Most of her patients collect fairy or dragon memorabilia. Why? Because they’ve actually been to Fairy World and are trying to remember it.
Here’s where I need your help. The first patient the reader is introduced to is going to be the Everynerd. I need this guy to be identifiable with every nerd out there. I’ve already come up with some stereotypical nerdy stuff, but I need more ideas. What are some things nerds are into that aren’t necessarily portrayed on TV? I need each of you to reach into your inner nerd and give me some ideas. Leave a comment and let me know what makes the perfect nerd.
