E is for…..

Ella, who has been removed because I want to use her for my Nano 2012 novel.

Sorry you missed it 😦


A-Z Challenge

Awwwww, I actually feel quite sorry for her….its like shes on a hamsters wheel 😦 I think she loves her kids to bits, but secretly dreams of some thing more. Does she crave excitement? Has the fun completely gone out of her life? And what about that husband? Will he run off with the next door neighbour? πŸ˜‰

Yesterday’s prompt about the summer fling turned into a story about a guy having a holiday romance. The trouble is, he’s fallen in love with her…..hmmmmm, where’s that gunna end up? Lol. Today’s prompt is something to be sorry for. Oh dear, that could end up quite depressing lol

  1. I think you definitely have some digging to do with this character. Most moms can related to the day or sometimes more than one day a week when they walk out with their kids and they don’t care about their appearance, because they have to take the kids to school or daycare. I find the insomnia, baking and nervous actions to be the most interesting parts of her character. There is something causing it. Good work!


  2. I like this character you’ve sketched out! I’m a mom of 3 who babysat my niece and nephew when they were little, which meant me carting around 5 stairstep kids with ages ranging from 12 to 2, so I can totally relate to her!

    I hope she gets to have that other childs she wants, and I bet she might end up with a career baking or catering, maybe. πŸ™‚


  3. Omg, having had 3, to have 4 boys all young.. What a handful!!! She must be exhausted and with very little help from hubby, that’s not good. Can you imagine the relief once a week!!!!


  4. Aside from the element of children, I can really relate to Ella. I have a raging case of insomnia and there’s nothing I can’t bake. πŸ™‚ Life doesn’t have to be a thrill a minute ride all the time. There is a lot of joy in contentment and doing the things you love.


  5. Her apparently idyllic life is hiding a mountain of anxiety. Mostly around her husband, I’d guess. Why does she think a FIFTH child would solve any problems whatsoever? She’s desperate because she has no self-identity IMHO. Maybe Gran could take the kids a second day each week? Maybe she could start selling her produce (no specialty herbs) so she can hire a local high-school kid to give her time alone. Hmm, maybe she also needs a celebrity chef seeking the herbs (or maybe cheese if she lives on a farm instead?)
