Playing around with French Huguenot names for the female protagonist in my new story. I want to weave some of my own lesser-known heritage into this particular story because it is of some interest. A society of persecuted people that emigrated in search of a better life.

I have not yet decided on some of the other names for the characters – perhaps Cameron for the male protagonist – or the true basis of the television show that brings them together. A rough sketch is coming together and I can’t wait to start writing. 

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

I was in my teens when I first saw this phrase on a bookmark. It continues to stay with me to this day. I took the statement literally when I started running a few years ago. In February, I’ll be (hopefully) completing my 10th half marathon.

So I embark on this new journey with the same goal in mind. I want to start taking my writing craft seriously and this is the way to keep myself honest.

I invite you to come along for the ride.
