Well, today I did school and baked pumpkin bread. Yuck for the former, yum for the latter! I told Robbie that I wouldn't be able to write about the campout, so that's off my back. I still haven't done anything in my story, but I think I know how I'm going to end it. But I'm not telling! When I publish it and get famous, you'll just have to buy it and read it. Heehee. I'm changing my bad guy's name from Dragoslav to something else. Any ideas for a sinister name that actually sounds believable?

Umm, it still all depends on what type of story it is.

It's kinda...well, I'm not sure if it's medieval or 1700s. There's a little of both.

Well, than you can go a little more outlandish, just not completely. But I currently have no good ideas for a sinister believable name.

Maybe Wickham. It's taken, yes I know, but the name conjures up to me the word wicked.

Don't use Wickham. Yes, it's already taken ,but also, it will take away from the originality of your story. And knowing you ,Em, I'm sure you can come up with a better name. :)

Well, then, how about Morthos? Or Lord Rugoth? Maybe those are still too weird?

Oh, and you guys need to put some stuff on your profiles. And Danna, you need to join the Jane Austen blog!!!

No, my profile is just here so that I can post on other peoples closed sites. That is all.

Okay, so I'm thinking Rugoth. Sound okay?

If you are going to go to names like that, I will cast my vote for Morgoth.

Isn't Morthos taken in the Silmarillion? I actually haven't read it, but I heard that there's some guy by that name in there. And Morthos sounds kinda like Morpheus to me, which is too sci-fi for my kinda story. You know, the Matrix guy?

Actually, it is Morgoth that is in the Silmarillion. And that is a great book if you are into the histories of Middle-Earth, although if you are really into them, I suggest reading all of the other historical books first, because then you will have an idea what it is talking about all of the time, and how it all ties together, whereas if you read them seperately, they are first a jumble of stories, and you can't remember where they fit anyway, and so you have to go back and read the Silmarillion again anyway. I have no new names to offer, if you are wondering. And also, if you are wondering, I really feel like typing, but I don't feel like posting, so I will jsut make a few big comments. Bye.

I like the name Lord Rugoth.

Yes, I like it too. But I'm still stuck on a MAJOR point: what direction should I send it? Tragedy, happily-ever-after, fantasy--I've considered all of those and more. What do you guys think? And do you think I should put another post on now so that we can start up fresh?

I think that it should be a a happily-ever-after ending mixed with a little sorrow.You're going to let Megan and I read this after your finished right?
