Support for A to Z Bloggers

A, B, C. It's day three of the April A to Z blogging challenge, which has hundreds and hundreds of participants blogging a letter of the alphabet every day this month. Don't know how you're all keeping up with daily blog posts - it's incredible!

I've got an A to C wrapup of my weekend in support:

A is for the absence of editing. I had a full day yesterday and instead had fun catching up on reading and on visiting fellow Harry Potter blogfesters. Then I squeezed in a couple hours of editing at night. At this rate, the start of Round Two of A Round of Words in 80 Days couldn't come soon enough, so that I'm accountable for my actions.

Who else is joining?

B is for Baha, Rosa's husband. Specifically, I find it interesting that the most romantic scenes in Out of the Water always come to me from his pov. It's easy to imagine and discover his actions -- him taking her by the hand and leading her places, him planning for their future, his mind running on thoughts of her -- and slightly more difficult to figure out her reactions. Though, conversely, most of the action scenes are instigated by her motives and movements.

Are your male or female characters easier to read?

C is for collectible. I made a list the other day of all the papers and other items that Rosa collects on her journey across the Mediterranean: an Ottoman miniature, her birth certificate, a silk shawl, a copy of The Book of Good Love, her marriage certificate and wedding ring, black silk to be sewn into a dress later on, and dried flowers from a wreath she wore in her hair. She might collect some rocks or shells if she can figure out where to save them.

What sorts of things do your characters collect?


Thank you to fellow author, blogger and avid coffee drinker Susan Fields for the lovely blog award!
