I got to introduce my favorite character yesterday! Of course, I didn't know that he was going to be my favorite character, probably because he wasn't at all the type of character I expected him to be (that seems to be a recurring theme for me in this story) but he made the whole day of writing a treat! He's one of those characters whose personality and mannerisms are so distinct and clear that you don't have to figure out anything they say or do for yourself; they just do their thing, and you write it down.
My main character now has a trusty sidekick, and I'm off to do the breakfast dishes and get back to writing!


  1. Lucky, I have fourteen charries to juggle--but I walked one off a cliff in his sleep, burnt one to death , and also had one run off.

  2. LOL-and I thought I was hard on my cast! : ) Fortunately, being stranded on a tiny remote island in the middle of nowhere doesn't require a huge cast. Don't worry, though, I'm fixing to introduce a whole shipload of characters--literally
