I have to confess to some major dragging of the feet on this challenge. There's a reason I write fantasy books. I'm trying to steer clear of the 'real world' for a little while. But once I got started, I found out some really interesting things.
#MayLitWrit Day 24 - Your MC In The Real World
If Zec lived in the real world, his name would probably be Zach, short for Zachary. He'd look similar (but not exactly like) Ethan Hawke in his younger years. He be partial to gray coveralls. And he'd probably be studying gemstone carving. Yes, that's right. Did you know that exists today? I thought it was something lost in the past but apparently there are several places you can go to learn how to do this. My hands are itching to try...but the thought of ruining beautiful gemstones because of my inherent clumsiness would definitely hold me back. I'll stick to writing, I think. Touring one of the schools would be fun, though.
If Liha lived in the real world, her name might be Lisa, though I'm not overly fond of that name for writing. She'd probably be vegan or vegetarian and love gypsy and bohemian clothing. She'd be interested in holistic health and living and probably be studying to be an entrepreneur herbalist. She might not have very many friends but those she'd choose would be the kind that last a lifetime.
I wasn't sure if this was what the challenge creators meant but had fun looking things up. And for the record, I would love to be an affiliate for different stores and websites, but I haven't had the time to get it all together. So NONE of these folks paid me for sharing their links or products. I shared them mostly for reference.
