My 2016 NaNoWriMo novel, Just Be, happens to feature a rock star. He's not a rock star so much as a guitar god, I guess, and I have yet to really flesh that side of the story out. However, yesterday, as I sat at the computer trying to add a few more words to my story, this character--who is now named Matt instead of Trey--started speaking to me.
In Richard Marx lyrics.
Yes, FRN, he really did! So now, my novel might feature Richard Marx (or at least a few of his songs), and I'm thinking that it's a good thing...a way to remember the past and how much fun we had with good old Richard. In fact, once I figured out what Matt needed to tell me yesterday, I began researching his lyrics, listening to his songs, and avoiding strange looks from my children.
So on this day of Thanksgiving, one in which I find myself immensely grateful and satisfied with my life, I'm wishing you wonderful thoughts and many blessings. And so does Richard.
