Nanowrimo is about to start, yes.

What? You ask if I am nervous?


Why would I?

I mean, do I look nervous?

I thought so.

Because . . . Well, just because my main character (MC) doesn't yet have a name? Because his younger brother, which is the initiator (narrator character that starts and ends the whole thing) doesn't yet have a name, either? Because their father doesn't yet have a name? Because the MC's wife and sons don't yet have a name, either?

Details, details . . .

Argh! This is frustrating. I have some tons of nice, real, Persian names, and none of them is fit! Either they are too similar to the ones of the historical figures (and I already have a repetition!) or they are fairly hard to read.

Bummer. In my LJ you can find a chain of letters between me and my characters (in Spanish, sorry) where they, simply, declare themselves in silent strike (hehe).

Hehe. Like I'm gonna let 'em do this to me . . . Hail, Eris, hail! I will crush them into tiny bits of pieces of minuscule particles! Disintegration!

Sigh . . . If it only were as easy.


Anyway. I'm ready, name or not, to write. No, slash that: I am eager to start writing!

Good luck to all Nanoers this year, and Blessed Samhain to all wiccans and heathens out there that Celebrate!

So, that's what your Spanish stuff was about. I was too lazy to read it with a dictionary and the concentration necessary to decipher a language I don't have. :)
