As I've mentioned on the old blog before, my favorite part of NaNoWriMo is getting a bound copy of my book in the mail courtesy of CreateSpace.  I've had the 2008 and 2009 novels on display in my cube at work for quite some time, available for anyone to read.  Adrienne, the new woman in our department, picked up A Summer at Thornhill Manor, my 2008 book, the other day and started reading it.  Yesterday, we had the following exchange:

"I can't wait to see what happened to Felicia Grimm," she said.
"Who?" I asked.
"One of the past directors of Thornhill Manor."
"I have no idea who you're talking about."
"She doesn't make another appearance?"
"I don't think so.  I haven't read it since 2008 when I combed through it for errors the night before the deadline to get my free copy."
"Oh.  It's really funny so far."
"Huh.  Maybe I'll read it when you're done."


  1. Hah! That's awesome! Maybe you'll have to write a new story just for that character

  2. I was thinking the same thing but the character from the story I really want to use again is Norman the minotaur librarian.

  3. LMAO. It's great when you forget your own characters.

    maybe a spin-off for Felicia in future? :D

  4. I think Felicia was just a throwaway reference. I guess I could have her show up as a ghost in the Hall of Nearly-Dead Wizards and get someone to go on a quest of some type.
