Ok fellow blogizens, I need your help. I’m drawing a complete blank on what to have one of my main supporting characters call my protagonist as a nickname.
Think of the fanfare and admiration I will heap on you if you come up with the winning entry! Think of the satisfaction of seeing your suggestion in print on multiple pages of my book! Think of the good karma you’ll reap for helping out a fellow writer! Think of…
Ok, fine, I’m just trying to butter you all up because I don’t have any tangible reward to offer other than crediting you in the Acknowledgements. But, don’t let that stop you! This is your chance to prove your creative and intellectual superiority over mine and that of your fellow bloggers!
How to Help: Leave a comment on this page with your suggestion. It’s that easy.
The Rules: There are no rules! However, I do suggest that you review the character summaries below for proper context.
Wait! There is one rule. ‘Sparky’ is out. Sorry, no dice.
The Context: The character who needs a nickname is the protagonist of my (still in progress) Urban Fantasy novel, Jacquelyn Montgomery aka Jac. Jac would be your everyday twenty-something trying to make her way in the world and working as an EMT, except for one little problem: She’s a Jinx. Jinxes are more politely known as chaos class sorcerers. Jac’s magical abilities are unpredictable and have a tendency to cause her all sorts of misfortune at the worst possible times. She’s petite, raven-haired, green-eyed, snarky, and stubborn, but has the requisite heart of gold and wants to do the right thing in spite of her… ah… condition.
The character who will use the nickname is her roommate, Levi Cooper aka V. V is a tattoo artist and sorcerer of unknown class and probably very little class. He and Jac are friends and she looks on him as a sort of big brother figure. Levi’s Character Board on Pinterest.
Alright, that’s all you get. Show me what you can do with it! Impress and amaze me!
