Oh lexxie


To all my writing friends - have you ever had a character refuse to let you write a damn thing until you do things his or her way??? While my first novel is in peer editing - nerve-wracking, btw - I decided it would be a good idea to at least get a rough draft of the second novel going. For my main character, Leigh, I had picked another lab tech named Chad to be her future boyfriend. He's kinda surfer boy, maybe a little like Greggo in looks, but not personality. I couldn't get a damn thing to work out.
So I offered her Charlie's older twin brother, Brandon, for her boyfriend/husband, because she's going to have to be married here soon or her father is going to have a heart attack. *Grins* Something about spending eternity alone and all that stuff.
This is how I picture Brandon. Kind of a mix between these two guys, with most of the focus on the first.

I now have writer's cramp and about 25 pages written with ideas coming like there's no tomorrow. I guess she really likes this guy. Who am I to argue???

Never, ever let it be said characters are not alive. They totally are.
