This week, the weather has been in the mid-nineties. Woo! Sizzle! Hot! Summer is here. How’s your summer going so far? Doing any fun summer reading?
This week, I’m thinking about nicknames.
I’m writing a character with a distinct nickname. It’s a pet name that she is called only by one person.
Writers - what do you think of character nicknames? Should we include them, or does it just confuse the reader?
Readers – do you like characters with nicknames?
And, I want to know - Do you or did you ever have a nickname?
Hubby calls me Pooh. The kids affectionately call me Mamoo. I love it.
Would love to hear from you!
Between you, me and the gatepost,
By the way, I’m really enjoying Jeanette Levellie’s book – Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top. Honestly, she has me laughing and crying in turns. A fun, well-written, inspirational read!
