I have always written from pictures. First time the solid idea regarding this novel appeared in my head, it was like a scene from a movie, everything was there - location, weather, time of day, exact relationship between the characters, conflict, and character appearance. I usually have tremendous trouble thinking of names for my characters, my current protagonist famously having changed at least five different names over the years - Eveline, Violet, Ren...I say 'famously' because many a writer's forum, blog and photoblog post and many a friend, family member or a stranger was quizzed on this repeatedly and in vain, because in the end I chose a name based on my latest herbal obsession (Melissa, lemon balm) and surprisingly stuck with it. But pictures were never a problem.

So without further ado, here's the model cast:

I don't exactly have a writer's block, just a really bad cold that's bumming me out, but still, this song really speaks to me at the moment, and especially this verse:

"Look at your watch now!
You're still a super hot female,
You got your million dollar contract,
And they're all waiting for your hot track..."

Like someone spied on my life, for real :D
