Sorry I haven’t been around as much, but I am actually WRITING again. Or, in this case, re-writing the re-writes of the re-writes of my historical romance, My hero is a dashing and dangerous 18th century highwayman who bears a distinct resemblance to a certain TDHSBK.
Due to a number of issues, some I could control, some I couldn’t, things had been stagnant for while, and now I am back at it. Leigh, my beta, approves of the first scene, and it feels good to be writing fiction again, frankly. I like to think that thumbs up above is RA signaling his approval.
Richard Armitage and his wonderful assortment of ChaRActers have the power to inspire: fanfiction, blogs, fanart, fanvids. There are some amazingly talented and creative admirers of Mr. A out there who share their flights of fancy with us.
Several published novelists point to Richard’s characters as the catalyst for their original creations. I wonder sometimes if he has any inkling of what an impact, a positive impact, he has had on so many of us.
His intelligence, talent, humor, character, charisma, beauty and sex appeal are a potent combination. Simply put, Richard’s got the right stuff, baby.
