Neith (pronounced NEETH, like Keith) is one of the main characters in my current series in progress, The Nome Chronicles Trilogy. When readers are first introduced to her, she is a seventeen year old girl on the verge of taking an important step that will affect not only herself but several others. She’s a bit naive about certain things, but eventually gets a bit tougher and smarter.
I’ve spent a lot of time with Neith in my head and in my writing. Sometimes, I know what she looks like and at other times, I don’t. I do know that she is a black girl with hazel-grey eyes and curly black hair.
I used to have pictures of what I thought she would look like, but then the computer crashed and … no need to go back to that most painful moment, right?
And so, now, I have to start again. Find images that closely resemble the character I have in my head.
