8. 'The Self Invention'
Genre of Story: Fantasy/Historical (still can't pin this down). A parallel world in which society is about fifty years behind where we would have been at the same time. See 1905, think 1860.
Time Period/Location: Ledanrod, 1905. (Ledanrod is the parallel equivalent to London) Specifically an area known as the Fisheries. People who live there are moderately poor. They take pride in their housing. The area is tidy but old and run down.
Character Description: A little girl, nine years old. Abandoned to Mr and Mrs Padrig Lockett as a baby. Her mother, a prostitute, informed the couple that the baby was their nephew's child. She hasn't been seen since.
Brief Plot: A princess is on a quest to find her lost brother - the true heir to the throne - and a young man with no memory is forced into helping a band of thieves steal the coronation crown.
Immediate Family (if relevant): Father: Cashel Lockett.
Mother: Maybelle. She didn't give her last name.
Aunt: Grace Lockett
Great Aunt: Lemsilore "Lemmy" Lockett (Girl calls her mother.)
Great Uncle: Padrig Lockett (Girl calls him father.)
Already Considered (if relevant): Brinna.
Anything else?: I have to change the girl's name as my friend's new book (soon to be released) contains a boy character of a similar name (Brae) and I don't want to seem like I'm copying her.*
She's basically a tertiary character. We only see her once and she's asleep at the time. I'll use whichever name is top of the poll after a week
In a slump with SI at the moment :/ 65,000 in and I've got that 'omg everything is awful, I just want to throw it all away and cry in a hole' sort of feeling Was hoping this might make me feel a little better, as this scene is one I'm going to enjoy writing when I get there.

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
