Need a name (first and last for a male)


Need a name (first and last for a male)





Normally I come up with my own names for stories through researching names, but thought I'd try something different this time. Give me suggestions for first and last names of a male character in my short story I'm working on.









A little about the character, if it helps





He's just being released from prison after serving 22 years of a life sentence for a murder he didn't commit. He's pretty low, and uncertain what to do in life, because he had given up on life and was prepared to live out his life in prison until new DNA evidence exonerated him.

Pancakes by Taylor Christine


Today, you get something completely different. Most of my stories can be pretty gritty, and where there is comic relief it doesn’t last forever.

But today is different, because it’s the start of the sharing of a series of short stories about Josephine the Dragon written by Taylor Christine.

I met Taylor at an open mic that meets every Wednesday evening at Stone Spiral in Maplewood, Missouri. If you've never been to this place, you're missing out, and especially if you've never been on their open mic night. Good times, good music, good poetry and yes some stories. Taylor writes and reads stories about a dragon named Josephine, and they tend to be short, sweet and humorous. She also writes poetry and I'm sure will continue writing stories of other consequence as well. But wherever her road takes her, for now, you can enjoy a series of stories about Josephine which I will be posting here.

You can follow Taylor on Twitter with @becky_ketchup.




Pancakes


Josephine the dragon paid $15 to have her palms read at Chesterfield Mall. The woman struggled a little to read Joesphine’s claw like a hand, but told Josephine anyway that she could see through that tough claw and could tell that Josephine was a giver. The woman explained that Josephine had healing hands, the type that made her a good lover, hand holder and mother. Josephine was not sure how she felt about this. She thanked the woman for her time and pondered the information on a nearby bench.

Walking Dark Passages

WP4Phone_20150911142607_0

So several years back, like 10, I watched this golden oldie called Dark Passage starring the husband-and-wife team Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. And today, I watched it again. It's an old film noir classic, so of course I had to watch it. But it's also much more than that, it does some highly unconventional things.

Drag and drop ALL THE THINGS into Trello


Drag and drop ALL THE THINGS into Trello





This is actually pretty sexy. I had seen a link to this before, but never clicked through and read. Shame on me for skimming over it, because this is pretty nifty.





Anybody using this feature yet? Do you use Trello, what do you use it for?

Remember, it could always be worse. You could be working for the evil Empire on #LaborDay . I hear their benefits...

Have a fun day off, if you have one.









How many of you have to work today?
