WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Yesterday in my Wild Bunch Wednesday post I gave a taster for a character called Jed Midwinter. So to answer a comment the creation process came about this way:
First off the was Black Horse Western writer Matthew P. Mayo's excellent 'Winter's War' that in turn led to Shakespeare's 'A Winter's Tale' through to 'In The Bleak Midwinter'. In turn this gave me a character's surname and a working title of 'Midwinter's Tale'. Jed just seemed to fit naturally with the surname. All I needed was a story and a character to put the name to.
