Sentence a Day (8-23-07)

I'm sorry! I didn't write a sentence yesterday (let alone post one...). I was going to write last night before bed and post it this morning since my computer upstairs is down (and in answer to Nathan's question, it's quite simply spread across the room *shrugs*), but... I started working on something else.

Character bios. Only basic ones, not in detail about stories. Just names, nicknames, what they look like, where they were born, died, who they married, children, etc......

It still needs a lot of work. So, I'm working on it today too. Hey, if I don't get any sentences written I can always post a bio.

Last night (and I am so proud of myself) I also decided what story I'm doing for NaNoWriMo! Yeah! Have I ever told you about Lysander?... Yeah, I didn't think so. Lysander is a Greek, a Spartan actually, who was exposed at birth, but survived. This one is going to take a lot of research, partially the reason I chose it (or God chose it for me). I've been really needing to research a lot of my stories (hitting those points when I realize I don't know what in the world I'm talking about), so hopefully this will jump-start me. I have an advantage with this story, because I did a very thorough Greek history course during the '05-'06 school year. Loved it and birthed a story. This will give me a lot of practice. So come my next visit to the library, I'm in!
