Over the past couple of weeks I have got more progress on my book. I finally found a website that has a list of names of men and women who lived in the 1500 hundreds. So now I can use names for my characters who actually lived in that time, so now my book will let the reader experience that time period and the events better now. Sadly while I was over break I really only did a little bit of writing and had huge amounts of procrastination. That really dose not set me back, because I have been really been writing at a faster pace and I can always just do a little more to make up for the lost time. Other than that everything is going well and I am still sure that I can make my goal by the end of the project. O will probably continue to write even after the due date!

Over the past two weeks I have made progress on my book however I ran into a snag last week, where I could not find any names that I liked that could be used for characters. However I found this website that gives names that were commonly used in Spain in the 1500's. This is great because I can use a name that people from that time period would have and also it has that Spanish twist to it. I have really been trying to add vivid descriptions in every page, but sometimes it can be very hard and I do not want to seem over descriptive, so I will just have to read my pages over and make a decision on what I think. Also I am thinking of killing off his great friend, Bernaldino though the plague. However I might want to kill off his fiance Catalina de Amar. I want to show now the downfall in his life after he has gained riches untold from his atrocities in Mexico. He might have been one of the richest me in Spain, but he is the most alone and internally at war person there is. They are just a little ideas I want to include in my book Other than that I still am making good progress and think it is coming along very well.
