Dear character

NaNo is finished and I have a very rough first draft. If I could only apply NaNo year round I could see the creativity flowing. I fear the internal editor will break out of the closet next month. Yikes!

During NaNo a participant in my region posted Dear (character name) and you had to write a letter to them. I was SO in! This really helped to break up writing and get into my character's head.

Here was mine.

Dear Bee,

      What is wrong with you? As your friend who secretly is doing everything to mess up your life and back you in a corner, I beg you to reconsider your love interest. He is a Grim Reaper for jeepers crow. You will die for loving him. Don't get taken back for those baby blue eyes, look at the ugly black cloak he wears. It's a crime not having a sense of fashion. I understand you are the only one who can see death, but I would have to vote no! Yup, not so healthy of a relationship. I would suggest you join the group YES I AM A PSYCHO!

PS I think your brother is pretty cute, can you give him my number :)


Give it a try and show me what you've got :)
A side note my kids think the Whip My Hair song is the hottest thing going. Help me! They go around the house whipping their hair around. It's an epidemic *looks to right, then left*

Good job on finishing and completing Nanowrimo, honey. Until next year, gotta plan what next to do to keep the kids out of your hair so you can finish.

That letter is hilarious! What a fun idea!

And cute letter!

Ha ha Elana you are going to be sorry for listening to that song, lol! Don't say I didn't warn you, its a weird one.

LOL! Hmmm, if I wrote a letter to my main character, I'd have to ask him why he didn't give up a long time ago. Then I'd give him a hug. Well, a *hug* hug, cuz you can't really hug someone in a letter.
