My new main character bares a resemblance to the actor Kellan Lutz. Kellan may not have my MC's shoulder length brown hair (which he cuts later in the book for practical reasons), green eyes, or tropical tan, but he's close enough to be inspiring.
I'm sure Kellan is at least in his early twenties but there aren't many seventeen year old actors out there that are built like my character. A hard life of fighting and swinging a battle ax around just isn't something the teenagers of this world really have to do much! Thank goodness. I did mention it's young adult fantasy didn't I?!
I'm still reading pages of Unders My Skin when I get a chance but I'm also trying to tackle Donald Maass's Writing the Breakout Novel at the same time. Reading is slow going since I'm in full swing writing mode.
This week's song off my playlist is Patience by Guns & Roses. Yep, really. Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000V693C4/ref=dm_mu_dp_trk5
