My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

If I Wasn’t Geeky Enough Already…

I’m joining a Dungeons and Dragons game 😛

Hubby and a friend of ours have been trying to get me to join. I’ve been to a few sessions when hubby played and I was just there to hang out. It was fun following the storyline. Tonight they start a new chapter and my character will be introduced.

I spent the last day or two coming up with my character’s name and personality. It was very similar to coming up with characters for a book!  Perhaps that’s why D & D appeals to me; it is very similar to writing (only I’m not the one “writing” the story or the world that it takes place in, only developing the character).

My character is a half-elf (chosen because I’m loosely basing her off of a character from my one WiP) with a bit of a temper. Well, at least that’s what I have–it may change. No clue what she’s going to be, as I really have no idea about the classes. Hubby has said I should be a bard or a healer of some sort. I’ll figure the rest out tonight.

Her name took me forever to figure out. Since she’s part elf, I decided to give her an Elvish name. Yeah, good luck trying to find one that is even remotely easy to pronounce 😛 But I came up with Ellethwen as her first name (hubby says he’s gonna call her “Lethy”, lol).  I still haven’t really decided on a last name for her (some choices are Autumnfire, Amarathar, Eveningfall and Lightshiver) but I figure I can get the D & D veterans to help me tonight.

Anyway, tomorrow morning I go to my sis-in-law’s beauty institute to have her dye my hair. I’m going brunette 🙂 I’ve got one of those hair colors that is naturally somewhere between blonde and brown, often called dirty blonde or dishwater blonde (which both sound disgusting to me ). I’ll at least be brunette for a few weeks  before the stuff fades away.

Oh and I  believe hubby and I will go out to eat sometime in celebration of our two year anniversary, which is on the 13th. Not sure where though.

What are everyone else’s plans for the weekend?
