Well, I had a bit of inspiration and motivation this week. I found a picture of the man who closely resembles (in my mind) Bart, my main character in my new book. Here he is:
(No infringement is intended by posting these photos, this is just my wish list if my book were ever made into a movie.)
His name is Eduardo Verastegui. He was raised in a little village in Northern Mexico and is the son of a sugar cane farmer. He can sing and he can act. And he would be my perfect Bart in my new novel Pocket Full of Posies. What do you think?
As for word count, I'm finishing up the first chapter and boy, this one has been intense to write. So far, though, I still love Bart, Colby, Claire and the Captain, so we're good. I've written about 5000 words on this manuscript so far.
How did you do this week?
And do you ever look at pictures of people that inspire your imagination for your characters? Why or why not?
