I’m quite busy this morning, so I’m just going to post a quick note here. I’ve been thinking about my upcoming NaNoWriMo project any time I have time alone (which is usually only in the shower). I’ve particularly been trying to think up some more characters for my protagonist to encounter. Today I create one: Merlo.
Merlo is a young wizard in training that hasn’t yet grown his beard or been able to afford his cloak (wears a bathrobe instead). He’s also having trouble doing magic when the protagonist encounters him in the forest. The protagonist of course helps him in a funny way.
I also may name my protagonist Art King. I thought that in combination with Merlo would be funny. Subtle enough? The entire story isn’t going to be about Round Tables and all that stuff, but maybe will give those stories a little wink.
