M is for…..


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

Sorry you missed it 😦

Oh dear, poor Megan really needs some help. Should her aunt step in? Or her mum come back? Perhaps her father should finally get a grip and actually actively help her, or am I being too preachy? You can’t save someone unless they want to be saved…..

I’m sorry if the last couple of characters have been a bit depressing, unfortunately that’s real life 😦 But I promise they’ll be a happier one tomorrow πŸ™‚

I didn’t manage to get the sorrow prompt done yesterday. I’ve been in a funny mood, just wanted to chill, so I’ll catch up today when I do write about “a history of whispers” (after Paul Simon).

  1. Hmmm, I think Megan needs to get caught shop-lifting by a hard-shelled female cop. Somehow the cop is forced to take Megan in. Each of them fulfill something the other needs desperately. Icing on the cake could be the cop also brings Megan’s dad around. I see lots of drama and redemption in the story. I think I’ll tuck it away in my ideas folder.

  2. I find myself, as a writer, affected by what I read, experience and work on professionally. You do not have to apologize for the characters you create. You are right. Life can be depressing, and it does touch people in a realistic way. I always admired Fitzgerald. He wrote based on his realities, and one of his stories and you’re character here relate very much to a big article I’m writing now for a magazine. I know what happens when a mother abandons her child. I have seen it first hand, and I watched her father step up to the plate. It is hard to say whether or not the aunt should step in. I’d say for her to approach the father first, and try to snap him into place.

  3. This character has tons of potential. Would like to see her with one if your other characters maybe. The single mum who wants to take her in, give her love. For some reason I don’t see the dad stepping up and if the mum left five years ago, wouldn’t the aunt have stepped in then? Been a surrogate mother? Sorry, Megan took over there for a second! lol.

      I agree, I would LOVE to see the dad step up to the mark, but I’ve got a nasty feeling he won’t 😦

      Yeah, that’s a good idea….I’m thinking about linking them all together πŸ˜‰

      In my mind, the aunt did try to step in initially, but Megan pushed her away 😦

      Lol πŸ˜‰

  5. I like the story already! Sad, but compelling. It might even been more powerful if it were told from the father’s POV even though Megan is the main. It would be exciting to see him pull his daughter out of despair and also comfort her mom and her new lover. πŸ™‚
