I bet that got your attention! HA! But I really am pregnant... or maybe I am in labor, either way I am awaiting a birth.
Boy do I sound cryptic or what?
OK, so I finally started writing an actual book. Yes, a book. One that I hope will be on the shelves of Target one day with a 30% Off discount sticker attached to it.
I am staying up most nights because I have children to contend with during the day... which is one of the reasons why I have always put off writing the stories that plague my brain. No time. But this time I cannot ignore the story (which I have no idea where it is going because I thought it was going in one direction but then last night it went into a totally different direction that is going to take at least 200 pages for me to explain). It refuses to leave my brain and I find myself walking around like a zombie playing out scenes in my head. It is maddening.
I have all of my characters and I have named them all as if they just came screaming out of my body and are wrapped up in a blanket in my exhausted arms. I would give them each a birth certificate if I could.
Naming them made me wonder... I am sure others have thought about writing before. You may even have the perfect name picked out for your hero or heroine. I always thought I would use "Emily" but it didn't fit this time around so I went with something completely different.
What about you? What is the name of your hero/heroine that you dream of one day being the beacon for their story? I promise I won't steal it... unless of course it is unbearably good.
