Day 3: Scenery


What is the scenery for this book - where does he hang out. Maybe at Mai Tais - loud music, people crammed in - he can't stay in one place for too long, but in Honolulu, he can hide for long periods of time, change venues - but it's hard because he stands out. He does stints of homelessness along the river in Kakaako or by Honolulu Community College. Homeless on the beach or even camping in the valleys.

Day 2: Creating a Character

Day 2 is looking at creating a character with the personality traits of someone you love, but the physical characteristics of someone you don't care for.

I've been thinking about moving these Hawaiian myths of the immortals to the 22nd century Hawai'i. There still around so what are they doing? Where are they living. I think the farther away Kamapua'a roams from Puna, the more pretty boy oily he gets. He is the party boy that everyone loves and hates in Honolulu, but behind the wall, when he is at home in the forest, he really is a different person.
