What’s His Name?

I just realized that having finished 80% of the first draft edit (plus countless edits of the unfinished draft) I have managed to leave a character nameless.

Each time I needed to include him in the story I’d write HUSBANDNAME to find it when editing.

Only when I first introduced him I figured I’d just figure out a name later–he really isn’t important–so it turns out he was never named.

Hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend. I gotta hit the baby name sites.

Sometimes I forget how beautiful everything is

I took these up at Lake Erie the other day. I read so much sometimes that I come to appreciate the beautiful things that good authors have written down more than the actual beauties around me. I’ll read about the beautiful rainbow or the motley colors of court and forget that I’m really only looking at a black and white page, and then when I go outside and see how beautiful nature really is it’s like I’m seeing the colors for the first time.

In other news, I really love my camera. If only I happened to have a castle on hand, I could take pictures of the perfect cover art for my novel! I might still do that, just find whatever I decide to represent my novel on the cover and just take a million pictures of it until I’m satisfied. If it was a modern novel or some young adult romance I would have six amazing options to chose from already, but that’s not the case.

Here is the cover I think I’m going to go with:
