The List (mostly)

For those who have been following the Adventure of the Book I’m Totally Not Working On, I Swear, here is the present list of knightly names:

  • Audacia (Courage)
  • Castimonia (Purity)
  • Justitia (Justice)
  • Misericordia (Mercy)
  • Obedentia (Obedience)
  • Patientia (Patience)
  • Reverentia (Reverence)
  • Sollertia (Skill)
  • Sophia (Wisdom)
  • Temperantia (Temperance)
  • Valentia (Strength)
  • Vigilantia (Vigilance)

I may end up tweaking it, but for now, that’s the set.

Now I’m off to see if I can convince myself to do my Victorian writing now, making my evening simpler, and also leaving me time to play with this . . . .

    I can tell how very much you’re not working on this idea. 🙂

      Well, see, I couldn’t really work on it because I didn’t have names for the characters yet. And how can I start writing scenes without names?

      With that obstacle gone, however . . . .

    Oh, this makes me laugh.

    They’re very cool, and I like them tons. I’m laughing because of the other conversation we had about this.

      How’s your New Shiny going? <g>

        See, I am womanfully resisting it. or, at least, I was so busy yesterday, and had to catch up on lost wordage from Monday (or so I told myself) plus I am concurrently reading through my page proofs, that I did not actually think about it AT ALL. In fact, now I’m kind of *ashamed* that I didn’t.

    Those sound really cool.

    “Audacia” isn’t ‘courage’ so much as ‘boldness’ or ‘daring’. If you’re fine with that, no problem; but I figured I should point it out.

    somehow I want to see endurance on that list. Which I suppose could be akin to patience. And of course you’re not working on it. I can tell. It’s obvious.
