Looking for Inspiration

I'm nearly done with revisions on my current work in progress (WIP).  Okay, I will have them done by the end of the month and a new story is already percolating away in my brain. The problem is I'm having a hard time visualizing my hero.  I have his name -- James "Jimmy" Martin -- but no clue what he looks like.

Should he have blond hair?  Should it be short?

Or long?

Should he have short dark hair?

Or long?

Blue eyes?

Or green eyes?

Well, what do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.


  1. OK, so the boys are pretty (except the one with the long blond hair - he creeps me out), but you had me at Paul Newman. They really don't come any better than that. You can always watch an old Paul Newman movie for inspiration, although who needs an excuse? :)

  2. I agree, Alison. I thought the long blond haired guy was a little...something but my sister insisted he was "hot." Guess we all have our own tastes. LOL.

    I love Paul Newman. The sad thing is my nephew's generation (he's 21) only knows him as the "salad dressing guy."
