Tag Archives: google images

in the name of research

It recently came to my attention that I don’t have a good enough mental image of the hero I’m currently writing to describe him with any conviction. All I really know is that he is huge (muscles, not fat, of course), generally golden in colour scheme and with very short hair. This man doesn’t need to hide his face, which doesn’t mean said face exactly invites you in.

So I decided to find an image and work from that. Turns out that it’s nigh on impossible to get anything sensible out of google images when you type in things like “beautiful man”.

When I poured out my problems into special k’s ever-ready ear, he said “Well, what does he look like?”

“He’s a big, buff, Scottish dude.”

And here’s to my husband: he typed that straight into google.
