I was looking back through my old posts to when I started this blog. I was hit upside the head! Back in March I wrote that I was in the middle of Chapter Eight. March! That was forever ago. Now here it is, almost August and I'm only nearing the end of Chapter Twelve. Unacceptable. I know I've had a few things going on in my life besides the book, but really... almost five months and only four chapters? I think it's time I put this thing in a higher gear!
Anyway, I was hoping that you guys could help me with a current issue. I thought it would be fun to have my readers help me choose names for a couple of my characters... Liz (main character for you newbies) vacationed at a really nice B&B in upstate New York. The owners of this B&B are a super nice older couple. Picture a still-active grandmother cooking up a storm for her guests. I've already written the section, but want to change the names. When I picture this couple, I think of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus; you know... twinkling eyes, rosy cheeks, warm and tender. But don't think all silvery-haired and chubby... They are very fit and active, as they do must of the upkeep on this place themselves.
I want nice old-fashioned popular names... Not too popular, like Jim and Mary Smith, but nothing terrifically unique. The year is 1990 and they are in their early sixties.
I can't wait to see what you suggest!
