All About Jilly

April 25, 2010 at 9:37 pm (Uncategorized)

I suppose there are quite a few things that I could’ve actually ended up naming this blog and at some point…(like when PITD is no longer a Work in Progress) I’ll likely change the title. I was thinking about maybe doing “Desperately Seeking Jilly” or “All About Jilly,” but that wouldn’t really work because Promises is yes about Jilly on the surface of things but  there are dozens (I’m exaggerating) or okay a dozen main characters and just as many supporting characters that make up the twisting tangled story that I’m working on. (for the most part). Anyway, I have this final project to do for my E-pub class and tried to figure out what I could do now that I could take forward with me. Why not something that does a little character development and gets an eyeview of what makes some of the characters in Promises tick. Again we have that problem or let’s call it an issue of a novel with so many characters and other stories in the background of the main underlying plot. So I decided for this to just stick it out with the novel’s heroine, Jillian Guthrie and jump into her complicated past after she leaves behind her familial home for college. Here Jilly makes connections with what will be her best friend, Vinni and her surrogate family, the Saitos.  So, I take things about ten years into the past and give Jilly her own facebook page. Also, Vinni and Lulu Saito had to each get their own because I couldn’t really have Jilly talking to herself at length.  I wanted a new way to tell the story and have to characters dialogue…which let’s face it…is what facebook is there for….dialoguing with those we’re closing to and/or spilling your secrets…posting about the most inane of issues from our day-to-day lives.
