The interesting thing about my Sean Bean pictures is when I look at them I think 'Nick' as in my current hero, Nick Archer, and not Sean Bean or even Richard Sharpe.
BTW if you have never seen Sharpe you are seriously missing out on a fabulous action drama. It has everything in it: war, honor, idiocy, romance, intrigue, spies, tragedy, lust, humor, camaraderie, sweeping landscapes and a great deal of historical accuracy (except for the fact Sharpe never existed).
I had a great writing day yesterday. I'm on page 228 of the wip (48,621 words) and the whole storyline is crystallizing for me although my heroine isn't quite there yet.
I've noticed a large absence of 'dads' in my writing, which is weird especially as my own dad is alive and well back home, and there was no shortage of other male relatives growing up (brother, cousins, grandads, great grandad, uncles, great uncles). So why the lack of parentage for my protagonists and antagonists?
My mother says I'm exactly like my dad... maybe I can't stand the idea of writing myself into a story.
Or maybe it is easy to recognize the importance of a father in a person's life and how the absence of a father can create such a strong impact? I really don't know. When I'm rich and famous I'll discuss it with me dad on Oprah *snort*.
