Wednesday – Wicked #ROW80 Check-In

It’s Wednesday – Wicked.

Some would say Hump Day.

I’m so tired of that phrase.

For the past month, I have been struggling with my wip to the extent that I was threatening to bury it out back. Good thing the ground is still frozen.

So after visiting a bunch of fellow ROWers today I was able to inspire myself to write 400 words on that crappy file.

This is a feat. First off, my Mom decides that it is time to chat. She always knows when I’m getting ready to write or am writing. I swear she watches for me to reach for the keyboard and takes this as a signal to strike up that conversation that never happens any other time. It’s just one of the dangers of working in the living room during the week.

I could go off to my office, but if I do that then she gets all pouty cause there is no one else who will sit with her while she watches TV. She’s going on 74 this year, and I don’t know how many years she has left to share with me, so I try and make the best of it, even when I’m trying to write.

Shhh – please let me finish this post – There we go again.

Well after attacking the file tonight I figured I would come up with a check in post. I like adding pictures to my posts many times, and I was trying to think of what it would be for today when it dawned on me, I don’t know what Treea looks like. She is my main character so I had to go and find a suitable model of her and here it is.

It might even help me by knowing what she looks like. I already know what her counterpart looks like. He’s my cover art.

Do you know what your characters look like?

Have you searched for a model of them?

I’d love to hear about your latest work in progress. Tell me a little bit about your main character, your welcome to share in the comments below.

    I think it’s sweet that you hang out with your Mom while she watches TV. I know how that kind of thing goes. It’s a challenge, but so worth it! And, hey, have you considered working the scenario into a story? Sounds like lots of humor potential to me. Anyway, I’m popping by from Row80 to say hi and cheer you on. 🙂

    Hi, Linda. Yes, I also use photos for my characters (for historical fiction). I pull them off Flickr or Google images. My favorite is Wikipedia as these are public domain images. If you go to my site, you’ll see a video trailer featuring an image of one of my main characters. And congrats on writing those 400 words, especially on a wip that seems a little stuck right now. I find the weekly checking in very helpful in getting me set up for the week and then actually carrying through! Maybe the turn of the year had something to do with all this, for I faced a real block at the beginning of the year (I’m waiting for a review copy of my wip), but that’s gone as of this Weds. Yippee! Celebrate every word!
