A Little Help?

I need a little help here, from all my writing buddies or anyone who wants to give this a shot.

I have notes on my novel idea that I keep in my Palm Pilot. I've scribbled in there for 3-4 years. I review it every so often to see if I'm missing any ideas that could be the thing I need right then, or if I'm getting off track.

Yesterday I was looking at it, and in the middle of some notes there is a name.

Guido DiGregorio.

I have no idea who this is, or what he's doing in my notes. I can't remember for the life of me why this guy is there.

So, you tell me. Who is Guido DiGregorio? (Maybe I'll have to figure out a prize for the most creative.) For those who know what my project is, if you can fit him in, all the better!

Step up to the comments, and begin!

  1. There's an unwritten rule in fiction that anyone named Guido must be a Mafia hitman. In this case, he also owns a flower shop and enjoys bird-watching when he's not out whacking people.

  2. Hi Jason,

    Guido is a real person. He is the CEO of a company called Communications Intelligence, Inc., or CIC, which is mainly a signature verification software manufacturer located in Redwood, CA. He is probably the most charismatic man I have ever known. So, he may be on your Palm Pilot notes because of his faith or because of his occupation.

    Cary-
    I've googled names for characters before, and I would've been well-served this time, it seems, to have done that here. Mr. DiGregorio sounds like a good leader.

    I was talking slightly tongue-in-cheek. I recall the name came to me just as an unusual, Italian-sounding name. There was a purpose for him, but I only put the name down, and forgot the purpose. Still can't remember. The trouble with fiction writers.

    Mark- Yes, but does that FIT? I'll let you ponder that. I like the bird-watching bit though.
