New blog hasn't set in yet. I would love to be able to post a meaningful entry at the end of each writing session, but I'm so rarely satisfied with my writing sessions! So instead of posting, I brood. I'm deeply envious of those who are able to brood in writing.
I've been writing a character named Leda. Today I read a Fanny Howe's story where she uses the name. My Leda and hers have nothing in common with each other. In fact, my character would be happy at the coincidence, since she picked the name herself. She thinks it's a better way of spelling Lida, and Fanny Howe certainly confirms. Her character is classy, if not nice. My Leda is definitely not nice. Still, I'd much rather the name were unique.
