I refused to go any further today until my hero had a name. I couldn't keep referring to him as HERO Mackenzie or Whats-his-face any longer. It was driving me crazy. Which granted is a short trip on a good day, but still...
Anyway, the man's name is Logan. I printed off a collage of pictures of the hero and my name list, sat on my couch and went through each name seeing if it matched the face. I narrowed it down to about seven but kept coming back to Logan. It's the only one that felt right. Finally...whew. I feel better now.
Once that was done, I started charting Logan's growth and plotting ideas based on his core belief and what he needed to learn. I came up with some new stuff but realized I really needed to chart things out in sequence to make sure it all made sense. I'll try to do that this weekend. I have a long weekend because of Remembrance Day and our office being closed on Monday. Maxx and I have a full weekend planned of Christmas crafting (and I'm going to attempt to make truffles for the first time...) but I should be able to squeeze in a little time for plotting and charting.
Then I have to work on Lucy and figure her issues out. Hopefully that won't take too long. I feel like I haven't written anything new in so long I'm getting antsy. I just want to write the story!
Oh well. All in good time. Hey, at least my hero has a name. That's progress.
