Hilmar asked (via email): Why do you call in the blog your boyfriend “boyfriend”? Doesn’t he want to be namely mentioned, or is it because you don’t want any disturbance because if you break up and if you have to mention your new boyfriend namely, it would probably cause unwanted reactions from your readers?
It’s just a functional name. I still get messages addressed to “Whomever You Are,” from readers who don’t know my name, so I use “Boyfriend” to identify him. As a bonus, it helps distinguish him from a character. This way unfamiliar readers won’t wonder, “Which one is Chris? Is he a vampire or a werewolf?”
In case you just missed it, my boyfriend’s name is Chris.
