Being a kid in Maine has its benefits.

Though I lived mostly in the city of Lewiston, I was able to get out into the countryside every once in a while. Many folks in larger cities don’t have that sort of luxury. We’d go to my grandparent’s house in Windham where nights and days were spent in the sandpit and surrounding woods behind their home. For a while, my siblings and I lived with our mother…

We’ve got lobster, which people flock from other states and countries to partake in. We’ve got abundant fishing, hiking and leaf-peeping opportunities. Hunting is always something people love to do here. We’ve got tons of blueberries and potatoes as well.…

I think regardless of style or personality, your character should run properly. Awkward run ruins everything.
