Jet-lagged but happy

I’m home again, and as usual exhausted from the jet-lag and lack of sleep. What do you do to feel human again after a grueling week? Me, I love to snuggle up with my husband and watch a good movie or play a video game. If I’m too tired, he can play and I’ll watch. 🙂

The long flights certainly helped with the writing though. I had time to visualize the entire book without interruptions–imagining all the scenes like a movie. The big turning points are all in place, but I still have some things to figure out for the rest. Also, more desert-related research and worldbuilding. For instance, how do the wealthy travel through the desert in my world?

Also, I’ve given my main characters names! Now, I can’t guarantee they won’t change with the writing of the book–it’s been known to happen before 🙂 –but, I’m calling the beleaguered Captain of the Guard, the one who gets possessed, Idh, and the woman who steals his body Ehna.

My husband’s comment–do all your main characters’ names start with vowels? I pointed out that Marak, who’ll feature in the next book, starts with a consonant. Admittedly, he’s the only one. Maybe I have a vowel-fetish? 😉
