If you read Ma’s blog you have seen this quote before (thanks Ma!)
On her blog, Ma has a theme, using words and their definitions. ‘Enough’ was one word.
I thought that was such a good quote I just had to have it. As a wanna be author I have a problem with characters and their names. I don’t know how the big boys do character names, but it is rough for me to come up with 5-15 names and characters.
So most of the time I use family and friends names in my novels. In the book Rags, I had a male character I called Rags. I wanted a lady who was morally solid, honest, sweet and as good as her word
She was going to interact with Rags. Sherry’s mama fit the bill. Susie was a lady in every sense of the word, and if told something in confidence, it went with her to the grave. No gossip, my sweet mother in law, just a sweet pug-nosed beautiful woman.
(Mom in law over the years)
Susie met Rags and befriended him. He was able to share with her his innermost secrets.
As I write this I think, if I had needed a man to fit the bill, it would have been Sonny. I was a pallbearer at his funeral. As we pallbearers stood around the casket awaiting directions to bring it to the grave side, I turned and spoke to all the men around the casket, “We all knew and loved Sonny, and if you told him something in confidence it is now in this casket and will be buried, you could trust Sonny.”

Too many folks need a second time to get life right, but not Susie and Sonny!
I had a wonderful mama, she could have filled the bill, but she didn’t spend her life in a cotton mill in ‘Mt. Bell’ like Susie.
We are still alive, and have time to get the last part of life RIGHT!
Thanks for coming by the Log.
Last night’s entry might have been premature. After posting I received an e-mail saying the books were now on their way and would be here on time. Now if they still have a vacancy, with a late fee, I can reserve a spot. Thanks for your concerns…
