Hero Types

Well, I'm happy to say I've finished another "short" story. Ended up with nearly 21K words, but I haven't started editing yet, so I'm sure it'll change. I like it a lot. So, that leaves me with a growing pile of finished manuscripts that need editing. Maybe I should concentrate on them instead of writing something new.

But you know me, always have to have a dozen irons in the fire. I've started a new story and I'm not sure who'll be my models are going to be. I like to have models when I write. It helps to have a solid idea in my own head as to what my characters-at least my main characters will look like. Which leads me to my question--

Is this man hero material?
I love John Krasinski. I think he's adorable, but is he too (I'm sorry John) geeky to make a convincing hero? I was going to first go for this guy--

Timothy Olyphant.

Maybe I just watched too much The Office yesterday.


Well, last Saturday my DS competed in a game called Hit Pitch and Run at the local rec center. I love my son, he's the best, but an athlete he's not. Still, he tried his hardest and that's what counts. The overall winner in each age group (we thought) would move up to the state level (this is a nationally sponsored competition that will eventually end up with the winners of each group competing at Yankee stadium (I think a Red Sox jersey would be in order). Well, DS got a 2nd place overall out of 2 people (though he did win the Hit portion). Yesterday I got an email saying that he qualified to go on to the next level, which is the state level.

So, he has a week to practice. He's pretty excited though. Who'd have thought.

Okay, time to squeeze a little writing into my morning.

    Geeks... when treated correctly... make awesome heroes. Put that guy in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, give him two days of beard growth, and he changes. I like having a hero that is unexpected.

    Good luck with your short story. And, yeah. Edit something, too.

    That's wonderful you finished your short. I'm embarrassed that I haven't finished mine. You do great getting so much done and work a lot plus have a family.

    I like John and Tim - both are hotties. good luck on your new one. Maybe I'll get mine done before you finish the next one. :)

The Legacy:


THAT KIND OF MAGIC--AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 17,2010 What's a witch to do when she refuses to use magic to find love? Beautiful Wiccan Charlotte Noone has a shop for magical supplies and a goddess who's pushing her to find the man of her dreams. When Patrick Riordan, a straight-laced non-believer enters her life, Charlotte falls madly in lust with him. Despite their very different lives, neither can stop the erotic journey they’ve embarked on, but will it be enough to break through their barriers so they can accept that love itself is magical?. .
