Circa: The Movie

Ok so I decided to do Circa as my WIP: The Movie Blogfest post. Circa is about a teenager from the 90's who getting turned into a computer program.  Then she gets a second chance at life in the 21st century after another female teenager attempts suicide causing her accidentally take over the girl's body. For prologue click here.

The actress below is Ellen Marlow.


To get to know Circa better here's an excerpt of questions she's asked from a previous blog hop. To view full bloghop interview click here.

1. What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?

It's a secret right now. No one knows that I used to be a teenager in the early 1990's until an experiment destroyed my body and turned me into a computer programme. Now in the twenty-first century I get another chance at human life thanks to a teengae girl attempting suicide using a tub and a 'stolen' laptop. I only know her name was Claire and now I have to navigate a new world with white hair (hers was brown) and freaky bright blue eyes. I make a friend with a school drop out named Lux but he doesn't know my secret and I intend to keep it that way.

2. What do people believe about you that is false?

That I'm naive and shy. My years as a computer program has made me quite intelligent and I only avoid people to keep my secret. It's not easy to lose everything then gain something completely different. I cry alone sometimes, I have no one to relate to. I'm an anomaly, or in simple speak 'a freak.'

3. What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?

I guess Lux counts as my best friend... He thinks I'm too closed off, anti-social. I agree but I don't see it as a weakness. It's damn hard keeping to myself so I don't get exposed. What if the government came after me or those crazies who fried my body get a second wind? Curiousity might've killed the cat but it's not going to get me turned into a guinea pig or worse. Whatever worse is.

4. What would the same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?

Lux says I look exotic. Idiot.


Title song of the movie: Born to Die by Lana Del Rey

This song best describes Circa's struggle to navigate a world completely new to her, the danger she faces and the love she never expected to find.

Circa is currently a book 1 w.i.p. of what will be a trilogy. I hope you enjoyed this post and bloghop. To view more things Circa click flash fiction and funny dialogue. Thank you for participating in this bloghop whether by post or comment.
