B for Belinda

Who is Belinda?

A few years ago, during NaNoWriMo, I started to write a story based on a tale my dad used to tell me when I was young. A tale filled with mythic monsters, a sea-goddess, an up coming doom’s day, a curse, a sacrifice and so on. It seems like my father had put everything in only one story. Well, he told other epic stories, that I may want to put in writing one day. I guess coming from a culture and born in a time where TV didn’t exist, you could become a great storyteller in your town.

The working title is : Mysterious ways. I already posted a few excerpts in here: And then it started to make sense and Excerpt – Mysterious ways where we meet Belinda.

Belinda is that girl who will always get what she wants using any means possible to get it. She knows how to use potions and creams to enhance emotions in other people. All she wants, is to be powerful and goddess-like. Still a bit naïve, she will be the perfect puppet for a demanding sea-goddess with a vengeance.

I love to write characters that are edgy; not clear if they are good or bad; driven by emotions. Belinda, is this flamboyant red-hair girl, wearing silk, velvet and leather. I have gathered a few images with different emotions that I use for inspiration.

With great respect!

  1. Sounds like Belinda is a good one! Good luck keeping up the A to Z!


  2. How blessed you were/are to have a storytelling father and that you are bringing those stories new life.


    • Thank you Bish! Yes, he was a great stroyteller. So great that my memory still remembers those stories, mostly. Of course I’m adding up a few dramatic elements to enrich them but the core of it, is still very present.


  3. love this character! and deep characters are intricate – good with bad quirks or bad with gooness underneath, like real people, often misunderstood or pre-judged.
    intriguing, beguiling pictures too!
    happy c day!


  4. I adore that first picture, so beautiful, if not a little scary. Belinda sounds like my kind of person.
    Wishing you fun on your A to Z journey. 🙂


  5. Before you even mentioned Belinda’s hair color I’m thinking…sounds like Belinda should be a redhead. You must have gotten your creativity from your dad : )


  6. Thank you Cheryl! Yes my dad had a little something. He coiuld have been a great writer. He was also an amazing poet.
