It's a Monday. Bleah.

Good news: The caseworker I work with had a 6-lb, 10-oz. baby boy who is 19 inches long and is named Isaiah. :D His mother predicts that his older sisters will spoil him rotten until he learns to walk, talk, and tell on them. (g)

Not much else has happened. I read a couple of Charleston posts and started reading a Two Alleys post. Other than that, I've been here doing work.

I hear they are doing DNA tests to see of they have al-Zarqawi's remains. I have to say, that's one man I wouldn't be sorry to hear was dead.

Writing: More work on Avriet tonight, doing Breakout exercises.

Current Mood: blahblah

I was going to mention this earlier but forgot to.

If you send me an email message, and I don't reply to it within two days, please, PLEASE ask me if I received it.

On November 11, I think, a friend wrote me an urgent email message asking me to call another friend who needed some help from me. It didn't arrive in my box until a week later, when it was far too late for me to help my friend. I know of three emails sent within the past couple of months which have never arrived.

If you would like my cell phone number, so you can reach me if I don't reply to an email, let me know here, and I'll send it to you.

1. Who are your personal heroes? Write down the name of one.

Dwayne ‘Dog’ Chapman

2. What makes this person a hero to you? What is his greatest heroic quality?

  • His compassion.
  • He truly does live his faith without being obnoxious about it.
  • His honesty.
  • He forgives anyway, even though it is likely that some people he deals with will take advantage of his kindness.
  • His realistic attitude toward his work.
  • His ability to have fun at his job.
  • He has the strength to do what he loves and the wits to do it well.
  • If he gives you respect, he expects you to do likewise; he'll let himself be taken advantage of only once.

3. When did you first become aware of these heroic qualities in him?

The first episode of Dog: The Bounty Hunter. A year ago.

4. Assign one or more of these qualities to your protagonist, even in a small way, in his first scene.

5. Follow-up: Before the climax, at six points in your novel, insert other times in which your protagonist exhibits qualities that you find heroic.
