For someone who has read more fiction that nonfiction (though I've gotten more into the latter recently), writing a memoir seems a bit strange. I'd at times envisioned writing a novel and could easily come up with names (at least in my mind) for characters. I've had a fascination with the name Bob for years now, and with the name Tina as well, but I know I can't keep using these names :-) As Amanda Fleet said in her blog:
Names of characters can be tricky! Sometimes I've come up with a name and then had to change it as it stopped feeling 'right' for a character, once I'd done all my character notes. Other times, the name has been just right from the start and the character has followed on easily.Right now I can't even come up with a fake name for anyone I'd referred to.
Now I need to figure out what was wrong with my printer, which I have not yet attempted to hook up since moving. I still don't know what is wrong with it. I want to be able to type and print my story so others can read it, so that I can get some critiques and opinions. I don't foresee getting a new computer anytime soon and don't think a flash drive will work with my old computer. My computer still works OK, but I can't get onto Pinterest anymore since they don't support the browser I'm using. And I'm on the mobile version of Twitter because of my browser. I want to be able to save my work. I miss the old days of saving documents onto disks. It was so easy to do.
