I'm Hailey and this is my blog. I'm an American dancer/singer living in Hong Kong. This is where I talk about the excitement & adjustments of living in a completely different culture. Everybody's welcome to come along for the ride.
Don't forget to buy my books. There's bound to be some holiday coming up.

Hailey's Novel Diary – 3/29/17
I've started writing, but it occurred to me that I don't know all of the character's names yet. I was going to name all of the female characters after Shakespearean women, but that doesn't work. I don't want to use Juliet or Ophelia. That leaves a few good names – Rosalind, Viola, Beatrice, Katherina – a few names that you can't help but think of something else – Regan, Titania, Hermione, Portia – and a lot of names that just don't sound right – Goneril, Volumnia, Hippolyta, Gertrude.
I came up with a system for naming some of the interconnected characters. It's either clever or stupid. We'll have to wait and see.
