Wednesday Writing — Research & Character Creation
Wednesday, July 14, 2021
Welcome, all. Even though I engage in full-on whimsy, and often pantser (fly by the seat of my pants) through stories, everything I do is for a reason. Today I’m explaining what undoubtedly seems like a strange quirk on my part — the color green. That also relates to a character in “Dead of Winter.” I’ll get to some research for that character too, but first that reoccurring color.
I hadn’t given it any thought until during the serialized rewrite of The Delta Pearl, I realized a connection in character names. Of course those riverboat characters were named after gemstones. I chose the name for the protagonist, Émeraude Perlezenn, naturally I was aware of emeralds. I didn’t realize until later the connection of the heroine of Atonement, Tennessee, Ralda, short for Esmeralda, which also means emerald.
