Happy Friday All,
I hope your week has been awesome. Yes, as I said, Jason and Laney (from my Immortal Dreams Trilogy) are still playing around in my head. "Awesome" is one of Jason's favorite words. If you asked him, he'd tell you HE'S awesome. And, in some ways, he was subconsciously modeled after my husband (I never intentionally model any of my characters after anyone I know). Here's proof (this is from a conversation we had a while back):
Me: I think I subconsciously modeled Jason after you.
Husband (grinning): That's why he's such an awesome character.
Me (in a dry tone): I shouldn't have told you that the first time I told you.
Husband just continued to grin and laugh. Go figure, right?
But I can't deny my husband has some pretty awesome qualities. He's a really good Dad, and pretty considerate of me. He'll take the Offspring somewhere just so I can write. He goes on walks and things so I can nap (whenever he's got a day off from work). So let's say, yeah, he's pretty darn awesome. But he also has the poke-fun qualities Jason possesses. So, yeah, in some ways, Jason is a bit like my Husband. Main differences? Husband is not an Immortal, and he's not considered 18 (he's actually quite a bit older than that, but I'm younger than him--HA!) Yes, we have a very playful marriage, and I guess that playfulness seeped into my novels. Not that I mind. I love incorporating humor into my work. It makes it more fun.
What sort of things do you like to find in novels?
Have A Fabulously Fun Friday!
