Actually, it’s my husband’s birthday today. Yes, I get hit with by the birthday fairy twice and Cupid within a two week time span. Last week it was my oldest son’s, and we used up all the birthday wrapping paper. So today’s mission is to get out there, take care of the normal daily errands, and figure out what on Middle Earth to get my hubby. (Big fat hint: anything having to do with Middle Earth.)
Speaking of birthdays and fiction…I am at a loss at when my current WIP’s protagonist’s birthday is. Lisette is clearly not a Virgo, but I’m not sure what astrological sign she ought to be. I don’t forsee her birthday happening in the time span of the story which rules out the fall months. She’s 16 through the story, but if she had a birthday in the story, she’d be the type to wear the big button proclaiming so in the hopes that she’d get kisses and hugs from all the school hotties. (Lisette is a bit boy crazy, but she’s far more innocent that she portrays.) Her locker would be totally decorated, even if she had to resort to doing it herself. If you’ve seen “Clueless”, she’d be a bit like Alicia Silverstone’s character but with a far smaller bank account, more accident prone, and not quite as clueless. Except for when it comes to pageants. She’s decided to enter one in order to catch the attention of the hot foreign exchange student in search of his American beauty queen. Lisette must navigate the treacherous waters of “Pageant Patties”, interview, talent, swimsuit, and evening gown and do it all in high heels. I picture her to look just like Jessica Alba.
Help me out dear readers, what do you think Lisette’s astrological sign should be?
