Inspiration Board #6 – part seven

chapter six part 7 with textjpg

For a split second, I thought I saw something in the window on the second floor. Suddenly a gust of wind blew my hair in my face, and I couldn’t see. I pulled my hair away from my eyes, and that’s when I saw it. I froze. I couldn’t move. I was afraid, but yet I was fascinated. I took a couple of steps closer, so I could get a better look. It looked like a girl standing in the window, but not a real one. It was a misty white cloud in the shape of a girl. I stared at the window, then suddenly the misty white girl looked real, and she was staring right at me. I gasped. I couldn’t look away, I don’t know why. I just kept staring at her, and she kept staring at me. Then she put her index finger to her mouth, like she didn’t want me to tell anyone. I shivered. The hair on the back of my neck was standing up, and I could feel goose bumps all over my body.

“This can’t be real. It can’t be!”

Inspiration Board #6 – part five

chapter six part 5 with textjpg

Images, make my story come to life!

They inspire me, they help me see my characters, where they go, what kind of trouble they get into, and sets the mood of the story. That’s why most of the images are dark and moody…with a little touch of color here and there. Just like my story!

Images are such a useful tool for me, especially since I’m an artist/designer/potter/photographer and writer. They help me design my story world. I can visualize my story in my mind, but seeing images related to my story takes it a step further!

That’s why I make these inspiration boards.

Zach Collins

Raven Hill Zach Collins by Melinda Marie Alexander2

I glanced at Joey, his jaw was twitching and his nostrils flared. Then I looked back at the three boys, who were crossing the street.

“Great,” complained Matt. “What do we do now?” Matt looked a little worried, but Joey didn’t look worried at all, he just looked mad.

“Well…Well…Well…boys, look who we have here,” smirked the boy in the middle. “I thought I smelled something foul!”

“Shut up Zach!” Joey’s jaw twitched again.

“What’s wrong?” Zach walked a little closer. “Having second thoughts?” a nasty grin started spreading across his face. He’d be kind of cute, if he didn’t look so mean.

“I knew they would back out, I knew they wouldn’t do it,” said the boy with red hair.

“What’s the matter Joey, you chicken?” the tall boy flapped his arms like a chicken, while the other two laughed. I decided right then and there, that I didn’t like them…at all!

“Shut up you moron!” yelled Matt. I glanced at Matt and saw his face turning red, and then I looked at Zach, who looked even meaner than before.

“What did you say?” asked Zach angrily.

“You heard him,” Joey balled up his hands.

“I’d be careful if I were you,” threatened Zach. I looked around…from one boy to the next, it looked like there was going to be a fight, a real fight.

“Why don’t you leave them alone?” I snapped. Oh crap! Did I just say that…out loud! I bit my bottom lip. Why do I always open my big fat mouth, at the wrong time? It always gets me in trouble.

“Who’s going to make me?” Zach sneered. “You!” then the three of them laughed, so I gave them a dirty look. “You guys are mean!” I narrowed my eyes.

“If I were you…I’d keep my mouth shut and mind my own business,” Zach gave me an icy stare.

“Who’s gonna make me?” I wrinkled my eyebrows and clenched my teeth.

Yvette Whitley

Raven Hill Yvette Whiley by Melinda Marie Alexander

This is Yvette Whitley

When I started my story…I named her Ruth. But then I realized, that I had too many characters whose names started with an R, so I had to make some changes. She’s been without a first name…for a while. I think Yvette suits her so much better. Don’t you?

She’s already made an appearance in my story, but it’s a very small part so far. She is April, Tabitha, and Hope Whitley’s mother. Her sister is Cassandra Collins, her brother-in-law is Rickford Collins, Gabriel and Zach Collins are her nephews.

And her mother is Olivia Winslow

Her husband doesn’t have a first name yet, so I just call him Mr. Whitley!

The Whitley's2

The Whitley girls!

Yvette, Tabitha, April and Hope

Xavier Collins

Raven Hill Xavier Collins by Melinda Marie Alexander

I’m participating in the…Blogging From A to Z April (2015) Challenge

For at least a week, maybe more…I had absolutely no idea what to blog about, that started with the letter X. None…at all! But, then I had an idea!

I’ll just create a new character

Xavier Collins has come to life!

I absolutely love that photo, he is perfect and I love his name too! Now, I just have to get to know him. Technically, I know who he’s related to, but there are lots of little details I need to know about him. I’m not sure if he will be in this book, but he will be a big part of the plot in the series.

Thank you…Blogging From A to Z, without you…this character would not exist!

So, do you think he’s a good guy, or maybe not so good?
