She basically wants to be famous.

Beth's personality is heavily based on what I was like around 10 years old and younger. The weird thing is, Beth has been the easiest character to write for so far. I understand her optimism and where it comes from, which allows me to figure out how she would see/react to things.

I sure do hope so. I am in the process of creating an entire plot line for this character that, I believe, is something that people can relate to in some way. But, I don't want to give anything away before it's meant to.

Thanks for the comment, Alph.
