N Stands For...

nasty!!!
You thought I'd do name, didn't ya? Fooled you!
At least I spared you from another one of the stories I wrote as a child. You're welcome!  I chose nasty as my word, because I love writing the nasty antagonists into my stories. Aren't they BODACIOUS?! They make the story so much fun to read. I am writing a story with a nasty MC. He does learn some stuff though. But he's so mean. I modeled him from a woman I know in real life. Uh-huh. You ever do that? For more REALLY, REALLY COOL A to Z click on the alphabet box at the top of the sidebar. BTW, isn't that thing cool? It flashes the letters in a fun, flashy way. We should all be flashy sometimes. Flash on, my pals.   :-)

  8. Loved your post today. Real life people can make some awesome characters, especially the mean ones.

  9. I used to teach high school English and one day, the kids were calling something (I don't remember what we were reading) 'nasty' and since it wasn't particularly nasty, I had to ask what was wrong with it. As it turns out, 'nasty' was the new 'awesome.'

  11. Writing villains is so much fun, especially when you're a good guy and a nice person - which you are! :)

  12. "good guy" should be in quotation marks... I know you're not a guy! haha :)

  14. It's hard to put characters in picture books that are too nasty - we walk a narrow line :) - but I love reading nasty characters! And I totally love your flashy alphabet and I want something flashy on my blog too!
