Okay, hang with me on this. The name of my character is…Ottilie. It rhymes with “naughtily,” which rings true for her more than once in a blue moon. She’d like for me to inform y’all (her word) that she prefers to go by Otto. You can call her Ottilie, though, if you don’t mind being hog tied.
Yes, I realize that this was not one of the poll choices or suggestions…per se. It was borne out of a concept suggested here. Originally I wanted to use some sort of odd, almost masculine nickname, like Amy, Avily, and Travis suggested, but by the time I wrote the November 22 post, I hadn’t come up with one. There were so many great names suggested, though, that I wish she had ten names!
The deal-sealing inspiration came during a Thanksgiving discovery, one I’ll share later in more detail.
Thanks so much for diving in with me. Now, if only I my fingers on the keyboard can keep Otto under control…
