Yesterday my car battery died, and this morning I sliced open my finger with a knife. I didn’t even look at the damage, just asked my younger son to go get me a bandaid and laid down on the floor, already feeling queasy. I just looked at the bandaid, on the tip of my index finger–it is dark with blood, and I’m awkwardly typing this without my right index finger. Not so easy. I may have to lie down during the writing of this post.
Today on the blog I’m casting AUSTENTATIOUS. More pictures, less words. These are the faces I envision for the characters. (They were not present in my mind during the writing.)
Nicola, Main Character
Brett Tilson, Nicola’s Sensible Crush
Sean MacInnes, Nicola’s Surprise Scottish Crush
Beck, Nicola’s Sidekick
Gabe, Nicola’s Best Friend
Laura and Leslie, Nicola’s Next Door Neighbors
So what do you think? Can you get on board with this book??
