The solution to my communication with Aija is to use her translator. No problems at all! I really like them both! Aija agrees to allow me total creative control of my characters. Amazing! We are moving forward on the book! Contract signed and we are on a roll.
OK now I’m onto a very daunting task – who the heck is going to take the images I’ve envisioned and really pull off these characters? I’m already checking into this — there’s so many illustrators out there though…who will be the best? Time for dinner…
This week was HUGE! I call it Florida inspiration… I finally have a clear idea in mind of the characters for the story… I can see them so clearly that’s it’s almost real: their mannerisms, their ways of communicating, their thought processes — now I need to get these ideas down on paper!
