Two days into Camp NaNo and I am hitting my Word Count Goals! Go Me!
Things I have learned about my MC and his family:
His mother is a very imperious woman, when she says something is going to happen, it will happen or else.
His twin is a nice guy, and a little devious too.
His sister-in-law is one of those wonderful women that people like knowing.
His nephew is adorkable, and five years old.
My MC on the other hand is this weird guy who is part cold hearted bastard, part prankster who at some point had a painpill addiction that no one in his family knows about. And he's a hero.
Plus Dom and Damien (the twins) were these total troublemakers back when they were kids.
Quotes from Day Two:
(Dom and Damien, referencing Damien's five year old son and baby-to-be)
"He's doing good, he can't wait until the baby's born so that he can find out if he's a big brother or a big sister."
(Damien, on their childhood)
"Back then I think we looked at a situation, thought about it, and then chose the path with the most excitment."
(Dom, age 12 following a long rant about his order of a chocolate strawberry shake)
"Of course, my brother wants a chocolate banana shake, can you make that too?"
(Dom and his friend Kyle on Sheriff Delacroix's dislike of Dom)
"You know, it's your fault he ever became sheriff in the first place."
"How do you figure that?"
"You were the one who realized that Sheriff Bright murdered those teens."
(Jane Highband, Dom's mother, on Dom talking about looking for something to do)
"Seriously, you aren't a kid any more, there are no mysteries for you to solve!"
